HUNTINGTON, W.Va.-The Marshall Athletics Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) is holding its annual canned food drive Friday, Nov. 8-Friday, Nov. 15 to assist the Marshall University Food Pantry.

The Marshall SAAC will collect canned goods at the Nov. 8 women’s basketball game against Bluefield (11:30 a.m.), the South Carolina State men’s basketball and UAB men’s soccer games later that day (7 p.m.), the UAB football game on Nov. 9 (Gate A, 12 p.m.), the men’s basketball game versus Rio Grande on Tuesday, Nov. 12 (7 p.m.) and the volleyball match against Middle Tennessee on Saturday, Nov. 15 (7 p.m.).

The drive is part of Conference USA's "Let's SAAC Hunger Program". Each school in the conference works with the local community to conduct a campus-wide food drive for one week during the fall semester. Marshall student-athletes will be on hand to assist with the donation process.

Fans, please do your part to help Marshall win this league-wide contest as we fight hunger alongside our fellow members of Conference USA!
