STATESBORO — To assist the Food Bank of Statesboro, Georgia Southern University’s Student Athlete Advisory Committee will be hosting the canned food drive called “Candy for Cans” at GSU’s next football game against the University of South Alabama.

Sponsored by Georgia Southern Sports Properties, the event will be run before kickoff, and will be located next to the Bishop Field House and the MC parking lot. Some of the SAAC’s student athletes will be working at the event as well, collecting cans and handing out bags of candy to those who contribute.

Attendees to the game are encouraged to bring canned and dry food items with them to donate at the food drive, but donations can also be made at any time during the week to the Dan J. Parrish Building.

The “Candy for Cans” Food Drive will be on October 29 before the next GSU football game, beginning at 5:30 and ending at 7:30.
