| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Over the next week, UK Athletics will be participating in the "Together We Can" food drive. The drive benefits God's Pantry, a local food bank, and is coordinated by UK and the Southeastern Conference.

At the following three UK home events, fans will be able to participate:

    Sept. 16, 2011 - Volleyball game vs. Auburn at Memorial Coliseum
    Sept. 23, 2011 - Men's Soccer game vs. Evansville at the UK Soccer Complex
    Sept. 24, 2011 - Football game vs. Florida at Commonwealth Stadium

At each of the three events, student-athlete volunteers will be collecting canned goods, non-perishable food items and monetary donations. Food collection bins will be located at entrances to Memorial Coliseum and the UK Soccer Complex. Fans donating five canned goods or perishable food items will receive free admission to volleyball and soccer games.

At the football game, student-athletes will circulate throughout Commonwealth Stadium parking lots with collection buckets.

To encourage participation, volleyball senior Ann Armes organized this video with fellow student-athletes. UK's student-athletes are going out of their way to get involved with this effort and I encourage you to support them.
