Student-Athletes Make Elizabeth a Little Greener
Elizabeth, N.J. (11/21/08) - This year, Kean University launched a new "Blue Goes Green" initiative. KU is taking steps to reduce its environmental footprint and promote sustainability on campus and beyond. The Kean Athletic Department, in conjunction with the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC), recently took part in a community service project that combined this initiative as well SAAC's dedication to giving back to the community by cleaning a local athletic facility in downtown Elizabeth, N.J.
Thanks to the assistance of Paul Addessa, from the Department of Recreation in the city of Elizabeth, last Friday, November 14th, representatives from each team headed out in the strange November weather and gave-back by making the local community soccer complex a safer and "greener" place to compete and play.
