Blue Raiders Athletics Joining United Way to Tackle Hunger

Blue Raiders joining United Way to tackle hunger

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – Blue Raider Athletics will be participating in United Way’s Hometown Huddle with this year’s theme centered around tackling hunger.

One in six children live in a food-insecure household so school breaks should not mean hungry children in our community. Become a real MVP by participating in the Hometown Huddle food drive for children in our community.

Middle Tennessee Athletics is making it easy for you to donate by becoming an official collection site. The Blue Raiders will be collecting items until Tuesday, September 19th.

Bring your donated food items to the list below:

  • Murphy Center Athletics Lobby (2650 Middle Tennessee Blvd) | Monday – Friday 8:30am-5pm
  • Rutherford County Chamber of Commerce Business Before Hours | 8/24 7:30am-9am
  • MTSU Athletics Fan Day | 8/20 3pm-5pm
  • MTSU Women’s Soccer Matches | 8/20, 8/31, 9/3, 9/7
  • MTSU Football vs Murray State | September 16th | Gates Open at 4:30pm

Change doesn’t happen alone. Join us and help eliminate childhood hunger in our community.
