CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The annual holiday drive for the Charlotte 49ers Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) has begun for all home sporting events. SAAC representatives will be at each home event in November to collect items for donation.
"The best part about our holiday drive is that it's during a very busy time for our student-athletes," remarked Director of Student-Athlete Development Chris Everett. "As they are preparing for championships, final exams and big projects, they find time out of their schedule to give back to a community that supports us so well. Our student-athletes are projected to do around 700 hours of service during our holiday drive.
