ODAC SAAC Carries Out Another Successful Food Drive
Randolph Leads the Way with Over 8,000 Items Donated
SALEM, Va. --- The Old Dominion Athletic
Conference Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (ODAC SAAC) recently
completed its fourth-annual conference wide canned food
drive. The canned food drive took place over the course of
the spring semester and concluded late last month.
The drive was a huge success with the conference SAACs working to collect food items for local food pantries and shelters across Virginia and North Carolina. The league accumulated 16,323 items that were donated late last month. This year's total bested last year's mark of 15,845 cans.
Each campus SAAC kept count to determine which school had the most successful food drive. Randolph College easily won the contest for the second year in a row by doubling its count from last year and collecting 8,534 total items. Washington and Lee University finished in second with 2,175 items donated followed by Sweet Briar College with 1,271 items.
