Students and fans will have the opportunity to help those less fortunate by donating canned goods to Second Harvest Food Bank on Thursday, Jan. 28, at the Lady Vols v. Auburn game. Fans get in the game free when they bring two or more non-perishable goods to Thompson-Boling Arena.
Last season, UT fans and student-athletes helped raise 4,300 pounds of food for the SEC's Together We "CAN" Food Drive. To encourage fan participation, the admission to Thursday's game will be based on donations.
Since the program started in 2007, student-athletes have helped raise more than 9,000 pounds of food for Second Harvest Food Bank. Second Harvest of East Tennessee serves 18 counties in East Tennessee, delivering food as far west as Crossville and as far east as Gatlinburg.
Be on the lookout for more Second Harvest events to take place during the upcoming baseball and softball seasons. For information on upcoming events visit www.UTLadyVols.com or www.UTSports.com.
