PSU Athletics Hosts NH Food Bank Drive Oct. 10

October 6th, 2009 by Adam

PLYMOUTH, N.H.-
Enjoy some intercollegiate athletics and help support the 2nd annual New Hampshire Food Drive Saturday, Oct. 10, at the PSU PE Center in Holderness. From 1-5 p.m., the PSU Student-Athlete Advisory Council (SAAC) will be working with the New Hampshire Electric Co-op Foundation to raise money for the NH Food Bank. Every donation collected on this day will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the Foundation, a non-profit, charitable organization founded by NH Electric Co-op. All of the money raised will purchase food to be distributed to pantries and facilities within the Co-op service territory; every $1 donation equals four meals. The goal this year is to surpass last year’s total of $1,350. Event organizer Lauren Lavigne said the PSU student volunteers are looking forward to a successful fund raiser.

“Community service is an integral part of the total experience for our student athletes,” Lavigne said. “The food drive is a very meaningful project that benefits many individuals in the greater Plymouth area. Giving back to the community is something we should all practice for a lifetime.”

Here is a list of athletic events occurring Saturday, October 10.

• 1 p.m. – Football vs. Endicott College

• 3 p.m. –Field Hockey vs. Westfield State

• 4:30 p.m. – Men’s Soccer vs. Rhode Island College

The SAAC organization is asking everyone to help out and give to those in need. Donations will be taken through the day at the P.E. Center. It only takes only a minimal amount to bring food for the many families in our state who need it.

For more information, please contact Lauren Lavigne, or call (603)-535-2763.
