Cardinals take time to give back at Armed Forces Home

WASHINGTON – The CUA field hockey team recently took time out of its busy schedule to visit the Armed Forces Retirement Home in Washington, D.C.  This marked the fifth year that the Cardinals have volunteered at the home, as the 2010 ECAC Champions got a chance to decorate for the holidays and visit with the residents.

On Friday, December 10, the Cardinals added holiday spirit throughout the retirement home, decorating a Christmas tree on each floor of the main residence, as well as adding decorations in the lobby, bowling alley and gym.

The team also spent time and interacted with several of the residents who are at the home.  Every year the Cardinals have visited the home their trip has been unique, and this time proved to be no different. 

No matter what’s in store, the team enjoys taking time to give back, particularly during the holiday season.

CUA won a school-record 17 games in 2010, on its way to winning the program’s first-ever ECAC Championship.
