Members of the Saint Mark's boys and girls' soccer teams met Nov. 17 to support Stockings for Soldiers, a Delaware-based organization that makes holiday stockings for U.S. troops who are deployed during the holidays.
For several hours, members of both teams helped to organize, stuff, and pack the stockings. Together, both teams also donated upwards of a thousand individual items for the stockings, including food, candy, toiletries, and books.
Dr. Jill Biden, a former member of the Saint Mark's English department, stopped by the event and helped to stuff many stockings. Biden, who grew up in a military family, took the time to meet the teams and take a picture with them.
