WASHINGTON - On Monday, Georgetown's Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) participated in its annual "Hoyas Against Hunger" campaign. For the event, SAAC's goal was to get every student-athlete from Georgetown to donate $1 to help out their cause.

This year over 10 teams participated in the event and they collected a record $430. SAAC collected the money and used it to buy food to make sack lunches and bags of trail mix to donate to the D.C. Central Kitchen.

Since D.C. Central Kitchen's founding in 1989, they have prepared over 25 million meals for their low-income and at-risk neighbors in Washington, D.C. In addition to meal distribution, D.C Central Kitchen provides culinary job training for "unemployed men and women who want to replace homelessness, addiction and incarceration with new careers and changed lives," according to their website.

SAAC, with the help of their donations and effort from their student-athletes, created 112 bags of trail mix on Sunday, which they then gave to D.C. Central Kitchen on Monday.

"I couldn't be more proud of our student-athletes and their participation in this event," said Annalee Abell, Georgetown University SAAC President and right-side hitter on the volleyball team. "It promotes Georgetown student-athletes within the community making a difference, which is always our goal. We want to impact the community in many different positive ways."
