“It was great to see the FoodBank,” said Ashka, who had previously volunteered at one in D.C. “It’s huge; I was shocked! They have reopened and are accepting volunteers.”

College Lacrosse Player Starts Equipment Drive

College Lacrosse Player Starts Equipment Drive

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic forcing academic institutions across the country to send students home, many spring sports seasons came to an abrupt end. For the first time in many years, spring studentathletes found themselves displaced from their sports and their teammates for the foreseeable future.

For Muhlenberg sophomore women’s lacrosse player Emily Gaffney of Livingston, a spring season without lacrosse was not an option.

She discovered ReLax Collections, a nonprofit foundedby William Dadouris, a men’s lacrosse player and 2020 graduate of Moravian College. Dadouris founded ReLax Collections as a high school student in 2014, and has since collected over $1,500,000 worth of new and used lacrosse equipment to support over 35 teams across the United States and in 16 other countries as they “grow the game.”
