WASHINGTON - The Gallaudet University men's and women's basketball programs have kicked off a food drive now through Tuesday, Nov. 22, with drop-off boxes located in the Field House lobby.
The basketball programs are working with the Capital Area Food Bank, who is asking for good and healthy food donations such as canned vegetables, hot and cold cereal, peanut butter, canned tuna, boxes of pasta, canned fruits, healthy snacks (granola bars, protein bars) and 100% juice boxes. Please do not donate any glass items.
If you donate on the night of Gallaudet's men's basketball home opener vs. St. Mary's (Md.) College at 6 p.m. you can receive $1 off your admission price for every item donated. Maximum discount is $3 off admission.
All faculty, staff, students and supporters of Gallaudet athletics is encouraged to donate.
The Bison men's and women's basketball teams will donate the items to the Capital Area Food Bank on Wednesday, Nov. 23, plus volunteer time at the location on the day before Thanksgiving.
