Gallaudet basketball teams participating in food drive through Dec. 1

Three Food Bank Boxes stand in front of the Gallaudet Athletics Department logo in the lobby of the Field House. The boxes are pretty tall, about 3-4 feet tall and are made of white cardboard. There is a brickwall behind the boxes with the logo above the boxes.

WASHINGTON - The Gallaudet University men's and women's basketball programs have kicked off a food drive now through Friday, Dec. 1, with three drop-off locations placed throughout the campus.

The three locations are; the Field House lobby, the Campus Activities Information Desk in the Student Academic Center and outside the President's Office on the second floor of College Hall. There is a tall white cardboard Capital Area Food Bank box located at those locations. All faculty, staff, students and supporters of Gallaudet athletics is encouraged to donate.

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.

GU will have several home dates during this food drive including women's basketball vs. Washington & Lee (Nov. 21, 4 pm), Rutgers-Camden (Nov. 26, 3 pm), Penn St.-Berks (Nov. 29, 7 pm) while the men's basketball team will face Shenandoah (Nov. 26, 5 pm) and Penn St.-Berks (Nov. 29, 5 pm). Please try and drop off your donations on a game day or whatever day works for you before the Dec. 1 deadline.
