Muskies Share the Spirit of Giving
Hoops for Hunger Food Drive

Throughout December, the Muskingum University community shared the holiday spirit of caring for others.

The Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) sponsored a Hoops for Hunger Food Drive on Saturday, December 4, 2021, during the men’s and women’s basketball doubleheader against John Carroll University. All fans received free admission to the game with a canned food, non-perishable item, or monetary donation. Donations were distributed to the New Concord College Drive Presbyterian Church Food Pantry.

The John and Annie Glenn Public Service Fellows led the 2021 “Christmas on Campus” initiative. The Fellows collected donations to buy Christmas presents for children who might not otherwise receive a gift. Christmas on Campus has been a Muskingum tradition for more than 30 years.

Through the annual Adopt-A-Child program, campus community members shopped or donated funds to provide a merrier Christmas for a family in need. Muskingum faculty, staff, and students have supported this regional area program for more than 20 years.
