SAAC To Sponsor Food Drive At OSU-UCLA Football Game

Aug. 29, 2001

CORVALLIS, Ore. - OSU's Student Athlete Advisory Committee and Sodexho Marriott will sponsor a canned food drive during the Oregon State-UCLA football game at Reser Stadium on September 29.

Fans who bring two canned food items to the game will receive a coupon for a small popcorn, which must be redeemed at that game. There will be drop-off points to donate canned food at each of the stadium entrances.

The drive, which is the first large food drive sponsored by SAAC, will benefit the Linn-Benton Food Share. It will be run entirely by OSU student athletes.

'We are so strongly supported by our community that we need to give back and show our appreciation for them,' said Courtney Carter, SAAC's Community Involvement Chair and a sophomore on OSU's women's soccer team.

Carter and SAAC vice president Todd Deacon, a senior on the men's golf team, will head up the food drive.
