Big and Little Pals hit the soccer pitch
The Saint Mary’s soccer teams helped organize and run a special day of fun and games on the soccer field for Winona youth. The soccer mini-camp was sponsored by SMU’s Big and Little Pals program, which matches college students with at-risk second- through fifth-graders from Jefferson Elementary School.
About 50 Saint Mary’s students participate in the Campus Ministry service program in collaboration with Winona Area Public Schools. The Big Pals develop positive relationships with their Little Pals through activities and by nurturing their academic, social and emotional stability.
