Men’s Basketball Volunteers with the Chicago Housing Authority

In March 2016, members of the Illinois Institute of Technology Men’s Basketball team volunteered with the Chicago Housing Authority’s Easter Essay Contest. Illinois Tech student-athletes served as the contest’s judges and helped the children paint Easter eggs.

“The kids had a great time at the Easter event,” said Men’s Basketball student-athlete Jason Morris. “We all had a lot of fun, and I met some great people.”

“It was a very fun and rewarding experience for our guys, and we look forward to more Chicago Housing Authority events throughout the summer,” said Head Coach Todd Kelly.
