Kansas Athletics Food Drive a Huge Success

Nov. 16, 2006

LAWRENCE, Kan. — Employees from Kansas Athletics, KUStore and ESPN Regional held their semi-annual food drive earlier this month and collected nearly 1,000 pounds of food and supplies to benefit ECKAN. Staff members brought sacks and boxes full of various goods to their quarterly staff function and collectively, collected 966 pounds of donations for the Community Food and Nutrition Program.

Department members were divided into two groups with the Blue Team winning the competition by collecting 602.2 pounds of food and supplies. Previous contest winners have been decided by “most items” collected and highest pyramid of food. Despite it’s victory Thursday, the Red Team still leads the competition 3 to 2.
