Embrace the Impact: New Haven SAAC Hosts Trunk-or-Treat for Local Community



West Haven Community Enjoys Halloween Festivities.

WEST HAVEN, Conn. – Despite the rainy weather, the New Haven Student-Athlete Advisory Committee held its third annual Trunk-or-Treat for the West Haven community on Wednesday afternoon during the women's soccer teams home finale.

New Haven student-athletes from all 17 intercollegiate athletic programs, along with the Chargers cheer and dance squads, lined the inside of the German Club decked out in Halloween costumes and loaded with candy. Trick-or-treaters and their families visited with each team, showing off their costumes, taking photographs and most importantly racking up some great Halloween treats.

The SAAC Trunk-or-Treat event is part of the New Haven Department of Athletics' broader community engagement efforts, which seeks to help the surrounding towns and community organizations while providing opportunities for student-athletes and coaches to give back to the local communities.



The NE10 is an association of 14 diverse institutions serving student-athletes across 24 NCAA Division II sports. Together we build brilliant futures by embracing the journey of every student-athlete.

Each year, 4,500 of those student-athletes compete in conference championships in 24 sports, making the NE10 the largest DII conference in the country in terms of sport sponsorship. Leading the way in the classroom, on the field and within the community, the NE10 is proud of its comprehensive program and the experience it provides student-athletes.
