NACOGDOCHES, Texas -
Approximately 20 members of the Stephen F. Austin Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) showed up at GODTEL Ministries Monday evening in downtown Nacogdoches to serve chili. Several of the athletes gathered to make the chili including Abreanna Massey (trainer), Adam Saloom (cross country/track and field), Allison Flake (women's golf), Torin Crowder (track and field) and Laura Servise (tennis).
"We ask a lot of the Nacogdoches community, and they are always there to support our athletics department throughout the year," said Joe Minden, a redshirt freshman quarterback. "This is just a small way for us to give back to the community that does so much for us."
The athletes began serving the chili at 5:30 Monday evening. Following their work in the kitchen, the student-athletes got rid of the aprons and hairnets and moved to the dining area where the spent the rest of the evening visiting with those who stopped by for a meal.
GODTEL Ministries, is a Christian-based organization that seeks to meet the needs of those in the area. In addition to the Nacogdoches location, GODTEL also has locations in Lufkin and Livingston.
