Holiday wishes 


KU Athletics Food Drive

The Kutztown University athletic department is pleased to announce that it will be participating in a month-long food drive, called "Bears Give Back", beginning on Wednesday, Dec. 28 and running throughout the month of January. All non-perishable food donations collected during that time will be given to the on-campus food pantry and Friends Inc.  Fans are encouraged to participate beginning with the women's basketball game against Wilmington on Dec. 28, which will be free admission for all of those who attend. Donations will also be accepted at basketball games on Dec. 30, Jan. 3, Jan. 9, Jan. 12, Jan. 18, and Jan. 25, as well as at track and field's Golden Bear Invitational on Jan. 13 and women's swimming's home meet against Lock Haven on Jan. 14.  Anyone who brings one non-perishable food donation to any of the basketball games will be given a ticket that can be redeemed for a free hotdog or bag of chips. Then at the game on Jan. 25, which is sponsored by the KU Student Athletic Advisory Committee (SAAC), a donation will gain entrance to a drawing for a $25 Giant gift card.  In addition to accepting donations at athletic events, Kutztown will also have designated donation boxes set up throughout Keystone Hall throughout the month. The athletic department encourages all students, student-athletes, faculty, administration and fans alike to be a part of this initiative and help the "Bears Give Back."
