Wednesday, November 19, 2008

Nashville --- The Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) at Tennessee State University is putting on its fifth annual canned food drive.


The SAAC committee will be collecting donations at three of the upcoming home basketball games beginning Friday, Nov.21 in the Gentry Center when the Tigers host Northern Illinois.


The committee will also be collecting canned goods and non-perishable items at the double-header on Monday, Nov. 24 when the Lady Tigers face-off against Cumberland and the Tigers match-up with Miles College.  On Dec.1, the final game-day of the drive, the Tigers will host Belmont.  


There will be drawings held during the games for individuals who donate items. Items can be donated on the first floor in the ticket-booth lobby. Halftime donations will be taken at the first floor concessions stand. 


Last year, the Student Athlete Advisory Committee collected over 200 canned goods for the Samaritan Ministries, a charitable agency located two blocks from the TSU campus.
