SAAC Donates with Thanksgiving Food Drive

(PITTSBURGH, Pa.) – The Student-Athlete Advisory Council (SAAC) organized a Thanksgiving Food Drive, challenging all the Tartan teams to collect as many items as possible to donate. The project came to a close on Friday, November 21 with more than 1,200 cans and other goods boxed and ready to deliver to the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank.

 “I am very excited that our athletic department was able to give back this holiday season,” said senior swimmer and organizer of the project, Kelley Sheehan. “The eagerness and dedication our athletes demonstrated to this initiative was inspiring and something I hope will become a SAAC tradition.”

The team challenge was won by the women’s golf team which collected 300 items amongst their seven team members.
