BOCA RATON, Fla. – FAU’s Student-Athlete Center for Academic Excellence collected an impressive 700 pounds of canned food during this year's Conference USA “Let's SAAC Hunger” initiative.
Donations were accepted at all FAU home athletic events during the week of Oct. 4-12. FAU Student-athletes promoted the event throughout campus and the community with flyers and emails. FAU fans showed their support and helped make this year's food drive a real success. FAU’s SAAC also partnered with A.D. Henderson Elementary and Middle School and collected canned goods from each class in the school.
This year's canned food donations will be given to Boca Helping Hands, a local charity providing service through food and assistance programs.
