LA JOLLA, Calif. - Working with the Neighborhood House Assn. of San Diego, the Triton Athletes' Council (TAC) helped make the holidays a bit brighter for 15 local families through the group's annual Adopt-a-Family program. More than 20 student-athletes visited the organization's South San Diego location Friday afternoon to drop off presents and grocery gift cards to families in need. The items were purchased with money donated by UCSD student-athletes, coaches and administration.

The effort was spearheaded by TAC Vice President Lisa Bradley of the UC San Diego women's soccer team. All 23 Triton teams participated and most were able to meet directly with the families to which the gifts were provided. "I thought it was an equally rewarding experience for us as for the families receiving the presents," Bradley said. "We appreciate the Neighborhood House Association giving us the opportunity to bring happiness to these families during the holiday season."

Adopt-a-Family is one of several community service projects initiated by the Council. The next will be the annual UCSD Athletics Department Blood Drive, Friday, Jan. 15 in the RIMAC Green Room.
