On Friday, Oct. 1, 2010, Greek pairings, campus organizations, and residence halls showed up for the first gauntlet challenge of Homecoming 2010, all in the name of service. The place–the New Student Center. The competition–cans.
The stage was set as members of the Steering Committee and, the newly honored, Top 10 Royalty stood ready and waiting to help all pairings and organizations unload their cars filled with sacks and bags of cans. There were peas and green beans everywhere. Corn and sweet potatoes were spilling over the tops of boxes, as ravioli and tuna littered the tables and ground.
By the end of the day, the sweat and effort paid off to a total of 13, 952 cans for the Central Missouri Food Bank. Congratulations Tigers!
