Dartmouth men's basketball asks help for food drive

Posted 01/21/02

For the fourth straight year, the Dartmouth men's basketball team is organizing a food drive to help replenish the pantry shelves at the Upper Valley Haven in White River Junction, Vt.

Fans who attend the Dartmouth-Hartford men's basketball game at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, January 22 are asked to bring a non-perishable food item -- such as a can of soup or box of cereal -- to Leede Arena.

The Haven is a non-profit organization assisting people in both New Hampshire and Vermont. In addition to the food pantry, the Haven also helps the homeless and offers life skills.

In return for a donation, fans may register for a raffle that will take place at halftime, featuring tickets to an upcoming game, Dartmouth merchandise, autographed yearbooks and team photos.

That night, food may be dropped off at the tables in the lobby area.

"We hope that Dartmouth basketball fans will help those less fortunate in the Upper Valley," said Big Green coach Dave Faucher. "We understand that the cold winter weather helps to deplete the pantry shelves at the Haven, and small contributions can make a large difference."

Tickets for the Dartmouth-Hartford game can be purchased at the Dartmouth Athletic Ticket Office at the Berry Sports Center, (603) 646-2466.

Dartmouth has television (satellite uplink) and radio (ISDN) studios available for domestic and international live and taped interviews. For more information, call 603-646-3661 or see our Radio, Television capability webpage.
