UK Student-Athletes Taking Part in SEC Food Drive

LEXINGTON, Ky.  (Sept. 20, 2011) - Fans attending University of Kentucky sports events have the opportunity to help God's Pantry, a local food bank, through the program, "Together We Can," coordinated by UK Athletics and the Southeastern Conference

Canned food was collected at the UK vs. Auburn volleyball game at Memorial Coliseum Sept. 16.  The remaining two UK home events being targeted this year are:

  • Sept. 23, 2011 – Men’s Soccer game vs. Evansville @ UK Soccer complex
  • Sept. 24, 2011 - Football game vs. Florida @ Commonwealth Stadium

Food collection bins will be located at the main entrance of the UK Soccer Complex on that game day.  Student-athlete volunteers will work the entrance and be able to answer any questions that fans may have.  Monetary donations will be accepted, as well.

For the football game, student-athletes will be assigned a collection bucket and circulate through designated areas of the Commonwealth Stadium parking lot to collect monetary donations from tailgaters.
