COLUMBIA, S.C. – The University of South Carolina men’s and women’s soccer teams will hold a canned food drive at this Sunday’s double-header in cooperation with the 2007 “SEC Together We CAN Drive.” All fans that bring a food item will receive three-dollar admission with proceeds benefiting the Harvest Hope Food Bank.

The seventh-ranked South Carolina women’s soccer team (7-0-0) will host Marshall at 1 p.m. in the first game of the double-header at Stone Stadium, followed by the men’s team (4-3-0) in action against Alabama A&M at 3:30 p.m. In addition, all youth under 18 will be admitted free with a paying adult, and the first 100 fans will receive a Carolina Soccer keychain.

Other places to donate on Sunday, Sept. 23 include the Piggly Wiggly on Devine Street, the Gamecock Bi-Lo on Devine Street and the Bi-Lo in Cayce on Knox Abbott Dr.

The Southeastern Conference Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) is coordinating the league-wide food drive during the dates of Sept. 21-30. All 12 SEC institutions are participating by collecting food and financial donations at various sporting events and on campuses.

The “2007 SEC Together We CAN Drive” will benefit food banks in the Southeastern Conference region.

The SEC SAAC is comprised of two student-athletes from each institution. The SAAC was established to serve as a medium of communication through which student-athletes, conference administrators, institutional representatives and coaches discuss and take action on issues relating to rules governance, student-athlete welfare and community service.
