BOSTON – In what has become an annual tradition for the Harvard men's hockey team, the Crimson spent one of their first days on campus this fall volunteering at the Cristo Rey Boston school in Dorchester. This marks the third fall that student-athletes of the men's hockey team have spent a day cleaning up and preparing the school for the academic year.
Twenty of the players visited the school this week, cleaning up the grounds, landscaping, painting and moving heavy furniture to ready the school for students next week.
"For the third year in a row, we spent a day volunteering at the Cristo Rey School," commented senior co-captain Alexander Kerfoot. "We had 20 members of our team on site to help in any way we could to get their school ready for the upcoming year."
Harvard hockey continues to make a positive impact in the community each year. To see a complete list of recent volunteer efforts by the men's hockey team, as well as the other 41 teams at Harvard, click HERE.
