Ursinus continues work with "We Are One 365" group

The Ursinus College men's lacrosse team continues its work with the 'We Are One 365' group to help raise awareness of the sacrifice made by our military and their families and to provide financial support to veterans and active duty military families.

Through the generous work of Senator Olympia Snowe's office in Maine, the group has identified and donated to another military family in the Maine community. This family lost their son in 2003 while serving in Iraq.

The Ursinus Men's Lacrosse team through their partnership with the organization has raised $500 to benefit military families in need. The group is donating two separate $250 gift cards toward a local supermarket to hopefully provide a substantial portion of the family's grocery bill for the months of February and March.

"We would like to thank the 40 players and staff of the Ursinus Men's Lacrosse team who has continued to show their outstanding commitment to support our Armed Forces and our organization," the group said in a press release.
