Recess at Sue Buel Elementary
Every week, Linfield student-athletes volunteer at Sue Buel Elementary School, serving as positive role models for the young students on the recess grounds.
As active participants in the NCAA Division III Special Olympics Partnership, Linfield's athletic teams engage with Special Olympics athletes in a variety of ways, including assisting with practices, inviting Special Olympians and their families to attend Linfield home sporting events and fundraising.
The Northwest Conference SAAC sponsors an annual fundraising contest in which each member institution organizes a coin drive to benefit a charity of its choosing. The school that raises the greatest amount of money in two days' time is declared the winner and receives both a traveling banner and bragging rights. In its first two years, Linfield's SAAC raised $545.35 to benefit YCAP's Friday Family Food program, which provides two weekend meals to children and their families who qualify for free or reduced meals at three elementary schools in Yamhill County. In 2013, the Wildcats chose to raise funds for one of their own, a student-athlete afflicted with brain cancer, and brought in $617 to help her and her family defray medical costs.
