Drive collects over 1,000 pounds of food to help local families during the holiday season
Assumption College's Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) recently took part in its annual food drive, collecting canned goods and other non-perishable items in neighborhoods in Worcester, Holden and Auburn, Mass.
The group collected over 1,000 pounds of food, which was donated to the Worcester County Food Bank. In addition, SAAC and the other student-athletes collected food and assembled Thanksgiving baskets for 25 local families that were distributed through Pernet Family Health Services.
