UTM, OVC Accepting Donations For Flood Relief
In an effort to help its neighbors in middle and west Tennessee, The University of Tennessee at Martin softball team and the Ohio Valley Conference are encouraging all fans to bring canned food items to the 2010 OVC Softball Tournament at Bettye Giles Field, May 13-15. Donations will be collected for the entirety of the three-day tournament and will go directly to flood victims in need throughout all of Tennessee’s affected neighborhoods.
Admission to the OVC Tournament is free of charge, but all fans encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item that will be donated to designated food banks and shelters throughout the area. The donated items will help replenish the stock that was severely reduced after the food banks themselves were hit during the floods. The most needed items include peanut butter, cereal, crackers, canned meat, vegetables, fruit and soup.
