SBA's Director of Communications Sharon Masterson said students raised $6,500 and collected enough canned goods to provide more than 34,000 meals to needy Mid-Southerners.
"SBA students, faculty, staff, alums and friends donated money through a myriad of fundraisers -- Powder Puff Football, CanStruction, 'No Shave November' for the guys," Masterson said. "(All) to raise funds and awareness."
"The students of St. Benedict have been our champions for years," said Marcia Wells, communications director of the Mid-South Food Bank. "Not only the students, but also the administrators, the faculty and the parents -- that's why they are such a big part of making our food drive so successful."
