SAAC Sponsoring #AUCANHELP Canned Food DriveDecember 2, 2013
ANDERSON, S.C. – The Anderson University Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) will be conducting a canned food drive for Anderson Interfaith Ministries (AIM) when the men’s and women’s basketball teams welcome Newberry to the Abney Athletic Center on Saturday, Dec. 7.
The drive, called #AUCANHELP, will help less fortunate families in the Anderson area, as SAAC representatives will be at the game collecting non-perishable foods throughout the evening. Fans attending the game are encouraged to bring canned food items, as the SAAC members are scheduled to donate these items to AIM on Dec. 10.
