GENESEO, N.Y. - Over 350 members of the SUNY Geneseo Intercollegiate Athletics and Recreation Department took part in the annual community leaf raking event, sponsored by the Geneseo Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC), Sunday.

Armed with rakes, tarps and the spirit of giving back to the community, teams of student-athletes ventured out to over 40 homes in the town of Geneseo and spent the day raking leaves and cleaning up yards in preparation for the upcoming winter.

"Our leaf raking event is one of many opportunities for our student-athletes to give back to the community during their time here at Geneseo," said Knights' Director of Intercollegiate Athletics and Recreation Mike Mooney. "Making our mark in the classroom, on the field and in the community are all important aspects of what it takes to be a well-rounded student-athlete at Geneseo."
