RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The Felician College women's basketball team will sponsor its Sixth Annual "Shoot For Hunger" holiday food drive during the women's and men's home doubleheader against Post University on Tuesday, November 26, at 6 and 8 p.m.
Fans attending either game are asked to bring a non-perishable food item. Donations will be collected in the lobby of Job Gymnasium beginning at 5:30 p.m. until halftime of the men's game.
