Alabama Beats Auburn and Hunger in 2014 Food Drive
The Crimson Tide continues to ROLL with the Beat Auburn Beat Hunger food drive! This now makes it 4 strong years in-a-row that UA has collected more than AU. Plus, a new milestone was achieved with over 300,000 pounds in collections!
A huge congrats goes out to the amazing staff of student volunteers in their tireless effort to make this a tremendous success again this year. However, the drive wouldn’t get far without the generous donation support from the community! Together we get bragging rights for beating Auburn and to help our neighbors in need by stocking the shelves at the West Alabama Food Bank. Roll Tide to that!
