Jason AmpyAnthony JoffrionRobert HollandChris MorrisAnthony Prince, and Charles Wright were the student-athletes that felt the call to serve before heading home to spend Christmas with their families. 
Coach Place noted, “I gained much respect for these young men as they could have decided to something else their first week of Christmas break, however, they chose to participate in this service project.”
The Hawks left from Chowan University on December 15th, and returned to campus on the 21st after spending time completely gutting a house in New Jersey that was damaged during Hurricane Sandy.  They joined a group of approximately 50 other college students from North Carolina as part of the NC Baptist Men and Women Disaster Relief Ministry. 
Throughout the week, the group took part in gutting the house including all appliances, sinks, bathtubs, showers and all remaining framing along with the complete removal of all interior walls. 
Coach Place commented, “The effort, sacrifice, and time they port forth was very much appreciated.  Chowan University should be proud of these young men as they represented the University with class.  Their involvement in this opportunity epitomized the concept of paying it forward and giving back.”
