Farrell named to SEC community service team
This marks the 24th year of the SEC Community Service Team for women’s basketball as well as men’s basketball. All league-sponsored sports have had a community service team since 2004, with general teams for men’s and women’s sports being chosen from 1999 to 2003. The SEC pioneered this concept with a football community service team in 1994.
Farrell found several ways to make a difference in his community during his time in Florida. The Ortley Beach, NJ native has volunteered with St. Augustine’s Church in her spare time, helping the local homeless population by handing out bags of supplies.
In addition to helping out at St. Augustine’s Church, the sophomore guard also volunteered at Shands Children’s Hospital, home to UF Health Shands Pediatric Emergency – the community’s premier emergency department. dedicated to caring for seriously ill or injured children, by dropping off greeting cards and recording a special message for children.
On campus, Farrell is involved with the Student Athlete Advisory Committee, or SAAC. SAAC members serve as student-athlete liaisons who monitor and discuss events on campus, within the conference, and nationally.
Farrell and the Gators wrap up the road portion of the 2021-22 season on Thursday night, Feb. 24, when they travel to Nashville, Tenn., for a 6:30 p.m. ET matchup with the Vanderbilt Commodores.
