Intercollegiate Athletics and the Student Athlete Advisory Council (SAAC) is sponsoring a canned food drive that started last October and will continue through April. The goal is to raise awareness and support for antihunger organizations in the local community.

Each of the George Mason athletic teams will select home competitions to place the SAAC food box at the entrance of their event. Students, faculty, staff, and the community are encouraged to bring a canned food item with them to be placed in the box upon entering the event. All proceeds will be donated to a local food bank in the community.

Events this month include the Father Diamond Invitational Track and Field Meet on Jan. 11, and the women’s basketball game vs. Old Dominion on Jan. 12. For more information, contact Nena Rogers at (703) 993-3594.
