STUDENT-ATHLETES IMPACT THE SACRAMENTO COMMUNITY - HORNETS CARE

STUDENT-ATHLETES IMPACT THE SACRAMENTO COMMUNITY - HORNETS CARE

Hornets Care is the student-athlete volunteer platform established this past year with the purpose to connect Sacramento State student-athletes with opportunities to give back to the greater Sacramento community. Beyond academics and athletics, Hornet student-athletes aim to become involved with local programs and serve as role models for youth in the area.    

A friendly competition has ignited between the Hornets sports to see which team can contribute the most hours to the greater community.  The team with the most hours to student-athlete ratio will be recognized at the annual Green and Golden Globes event in May.  

Sacramento State student-athletes can stay up-to-date with volunteer opportunities by following Hornets Care on Instagram.
