ERIE, Pa. – Day four of celebrating Division III Week brings awareness to the wonderful community service projects the student-athletes of the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC) have been working hard on all year. The 2017-18 community service awards presented by the AMCC are categorized in One-Time Events and Array of Events.
Penn State Behrend and the women's soccer team won the Silver Award for the One-Time Events. The Lions solicited pledges prior to the season for each goal they scored throughout the fall campaign in order to raise money for Grady's Decision. Grady's Decision is a non-profit organization created to help families experiencing premature births, as well as those families with children needing specialized medical attention. Grady's Decision can assist with parking costs, food, housing near hospitals, and transportation needs. The Behrend women's soccer team raised over $5,800 through their pledges during the 2017 season.
