SAAC Hunger Food Drive

The SAAC Hunger Food Drive is an annual C-USA initiative where each University in the conference collects non-perishable food items for a local food shelter. With the help of many El Paso organizations, UTEP was able to place 1st during the 2013-2014 academic year.  The UTEP Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) hopes to continue this as a tradition by raising over 10,000 pounds of food next year to keep their title.  The donation process takes place during a designated week in the Fall semester.  Members of the community may also donate monies online by clicking on the link provided.
