This year, Athletic Training Student Association (ATSA) had the opportunity to help the local community by taking part in St. Mary’s Food Bank. ATSA and athletic training staff members assisted in packing food boxes. St. Mary’s partners with nearly 700 non-profit organizations to distribute food to food pantries, dining halls, homeless shelters, and more. They also have programs that aim to help feed hungry children in local communities in Arizona.
ATSA continued their long-time partnership with the American Red Cross as the official organizer for regular blood drives on the A.T. Still University (ATSU) Mesa campus. On-campus blood drives occur approximately every six to eight weeks, and ATSU students and staff have the opportunity to donate and help save lives. During the 2018-19 academic year, ATSU drives collected over 150 donations.
