Salem , Va - The Old Dominion
Athletic Conference Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (ODAC SAAC)
recently completed its conference-wide community service project.
The 26-member committee worked together, with individual campus
SAACs, to collect canned goods for the third-annual ODAC Food
The drive, which concluded recently, was a huge success with the conference SAACs working to collect food items for local food pantries and shelters across the Commonwealth. The conference-wide group accumulated nearly 13,270 items that were distributed earlier this week. This year's total well surpassed the 9,215 items collected from a year ago.
Each campus' SAAC kept a tally to determine which conference school had the most successful food drive. Washington and Lee won the contest by collecting 4,002 total items. Randolph-Macon Woman's College finished second with 2,540 items donated followed by Guilford with 2,513 collected.
