Sam Houston State student-athletes from several of the University’s sports teams gathered Saturday morning (April 26) to help unload an 18-wheeler truck from the Houston Food Bank.

The Bearkat athletes gathered at the Stewart Elementary parking lot to assist the Huntsville Junior Service League in their project to provide food for 1500 Huntsville families. The gathering marked the second time this spring the Kats have assisted in the Food Bank Distribution.

Assisting with the Junior Service League project is one of many ways Sam Houston’s student-athletes give back to the community.

The parking lot was filled with volunteers to help with the unloading as well as families to pick up the food.

"The Junior Service League contacted us to seek help uploading the Food Bank truck and the athletes were excited to assist," SHSU Associate Athletic Director for Student Services Chris Thompson said. "The kids found it especially rewarding to see the number of families who showed up to receive the food. Everyone was so appreciative. It was a great day."
