JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Dec. 9, 2004) - The East Tennessee State University Student Athlete Advisory Committee held a Christmas party for area children Thursday evening. Several athletes from each Buccaneer sport attended the event, held in Memorial Center in Johnson City.

42 children from the Kids First daycare center in Keystone attended the party. The kids were able to participate in various activities and receive presents from Santa Claus. The SAAC received gifts for each child from the Salvation Army for the children that have been donated by the United State Marine Corps.

            "It is a win-win situation because for some of these kids, this might be the best Christmas that they have," said ETSU strength coach Lee Morrow at the event. "And the athletes have a good time and will remember that they have done something good for the community."
