MANHATTAN, Kan. (Kansas State Athletics) – The Kansas State Athletics Department will hold its 27th-annual Cats for Cans food drive during Saturday’s home football game against Oklahoma State. Fans are encouraged to help the K-State Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) fight hunger in Manhattan by participating in the food drive by bringing canned foods or cash donations to the game.
Wildcat student-athletes will begin collecting donations two hours prior to the 2:30 p.m. kickoff in the parking lot and at all stadium entrances. In addition, fans can drop off items throughout the week with locations at Dillons and Hy-Vee in Manhattan.
All proceeds from the event will go to the Flint Hills Breadbasket in Manhattan. The Breadbasket assists in providing meals for over 2,000 families throughout Manhattan and the surrounding area, especially throughout the holiday season.
Cats for Cans is just one of many community service projects that allow Kansas State student-athletes to give back to the community in a positive and influential way.
