ULM athletic department holds food drive
The University of Louisiana at Monroe’s athletic department collected 336 pounds of food, as well as a substantial amount of money through cash and checks, for the Food Bank of Northeast Louisiana at the exhibition basketball doubleheader held on Nov. 12.
In lieu of admission, game attendees were asked to bring a donation of canned goods or non-perishable items. All donations were sent to the food bank to help families in need.
“We are pleased to have the opportunity to support people in need in the Monroe area,” said ULM women’s basketball head coach Mona Martin. “With the holidays approaching, we are thankful that our fans took the time to help ULM support the Food Bank of Northeast Louisiana.”
