COLUMBUS, Ohio – Members of the Ohio State men's track and field team recently took time out of their busy schedules to lend a helping hand in the community.
“I am very proud of the efforts by these young men to help others by collecting canned goods,” Ed Beathea, Ohio State head coach, said. “As a team we strive to make an impact and give back to the community as much as possible. The canned good donations mean a lot to these families in need and our guys really enjoyed playing a part in that.”
Twenty-eight student-athletes collected canned goods in the Westerville area for nearly seven hours on Nov. 17. The canned goods were then donated to the Mid-Ohio Food Bank in Grove City. It was time well spent as team members collected enough to feed 1,121 meals to families in need.
