JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (May 13, 2009) - Members of the ETSU track and field team took some time out of its practice schedule to volunteer at the Second Harvest Food Bank of Northeast Tennessee on Tuesday afternoon.

 

The Second Harvest Food Bank held a food drive last weekend, and 25 Buccaneer student-athletes spent two hours organizing and packaging the collected items on Tuesday. During the time span, the ETSU track team packaged over 700 boxes of food that will be passed out within the Tri-Cities community.

 

"It was great for our athletes to unite and work towards a common goal yesterday afternoon," commented assistant track and field coach Eli Sunquist. "Everyone worked hard and I was really proud of them."

 

The ETSU Department of Intercollegiate Athletics takes pride in its community service activities and strives for 100 percent participation from its student-athletes, coaches and administrators throughout the year.
