BUFFALO, N.Y. - March 17 - Members of the Erie Community College football team spent part of their Saturday working on a Habitat for Humanity project in Buffalo.
“It’s basically giving back to the community," freshman linebacker Kyril Threats (Buffalo, N.Y./Canisius) said. "I do a lot of work helping my dad with houses. It’s just another day of helping out. It should be fun.”
The Kats worked on various projects from breaking a concrete slab and removing the pieces to building a wall.
“It’s good for the community,” said Andrew Buczek, a freshman defensive end from West Seneca, N.Y./Cheektowaga HS. “You see these houses that are pretty banged up. If we can help fix them for the families and the communities, it’s definitely a good thing. I think we can destroy anything so give us a hammer and we’ll take care of it.”
