WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC), through its Hoyas Against Hunger campaign, helped to raise money from each Hoya athletic team and then purchase food to provide to a local shelter this past weekend.

A program started last year by SAAC, each team attempts to collect $1 in donations from every student-athlete on campus. With more than 750 student-athletes on campus, the group has a great starting point.

After collections are made, the members of SAAC, along with some on-campus friends, purchase makings for sandwiches as well as snacks and vegetables. This year, the group made 360 sandwiches along with bagged trail mix and carrots that were delivered to the D.C. Central Kitchen.

"These meals go to kids who are less fortunate than us for after-school dinner and meals," SAAC President and women's lacrosse player Lauren Gray (Alexandria, Va./Bishop Ireton) said. "It's the second year we've done this for D.C. Central Kitchen and it's an easy way to contribute and do something good for a local cause."

Gray and the members of SAAC hand-delivered the food on Sunday afternoon to D.C. Central Kitchen.

"There is no better feeling than taking time out of our days and something for others who aren't as fortunate as we are," senior women's soccer player Christina O'Tousa (Newport Beach, Calif./Newport Harbor) said. "It's a great feeling to know that we can help out in our local community."

At the same time as the Hoyas Against Hunger campaign, the Georgetown Student-Athlete Advisory Committee held a fundraiser for victims of Hurricane Sandy and raised $1,500, which was donated to the American Red Cross.

The group will also participate in Wreaths Across America at Arlington National Cemetery on Dec. 15, laying wreaths on the graves of fallen American soldiers.
