Marching Virginians hold 13th annual Hokies for the Hungry food drive

The Marching Virginians and New Life Christian Fellowship are joining forces this year to sponsor a massive canned food drive in conjunction with the Virginia Tech vs. University of North Carolina football game on Thursday, October 29, 2009. The goal of the ambitious thirteenth annual HOKIES FOR THE HUNGRY drive is to collect 66,233 cans of food – One Can from Every Fan!

Jason Worilds, the dynamic defensive end for the Hokies, is serving as Honorary Chairperson of HOKIES FOR THE HUNGRY. “This is the time of year that many of us get together with friends and family to celebrate the holiday season,” said Worilds. “There are many families and individuals in our region who are less fortunate, and this is a wonderful opportunity to share with them. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I hope fans of both Virginia Tech and the University of North Carolina will contribute to this wonderful cause during the start of the holiday season.”

Drop-off points for HOKIES FOR THE HUNGRY will be established at all four corners of Lane Stadium and various locations near the stadium where Tailgate Pep Bands will be performing prior to kick- off.

All contributions will be distributed through the Montgomery County Christmas Store.
