Tiger Athletes Planning Canned Food Drive
Nov. 13, 2008
MEMPHIS, TENN. - The University of Memphis Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) is planning a canned food drive that will take place at three Tiger events the week of Nov. 16-22. All items donated will benefit the Memphis Food Bank.
Fans are asked to bring non-perishable and non-breakable food items to the women's volleyball game versus UAB on Sunday, Nov. 16; the men's basketball game against UMass on Monday, Nov. 17; and the football game versus UCF on Saturday, Nov. 22. Items can also be donated at the Athletic Office Building located on the corner of Southern and Normal.
The SAAC provides insight on the student-athlete experience and offers input on the rules, regulations, and policies that affect student-athletes' lives on NCAA member institution campuses. Several athletes from each team serve as representatives that make up the committee.
