Take it to the hole for hunger a success

GREELEY, Colo. – On Dec. 4, the Northern Colorado men’s and women’s basketball teams partnered with the Weld Food Bank to help fight hunger as the weather turns colder.

Thanks in large part to the 371 items brought in by the Northern Colorado baseball team, the drive was considered a success as the athletic department donated 452 non-perishable items as well as several cash donations.

The Weld Food Bank is an affiliate of Feeding America, the largest hunger relief organization in the United States. In 2009-10, WFB distributed 7.9 million pounds of food.
