MCCAA announces Hunger Games to aid local food banks

The Michigan Community College Athletic Association is proud to announce the First Annual MCCAA Hunger Games that will aid food banks in the 19 communities of MCCAA schools.  Started last year by Henry Ford Community College athletic director Rochelle Taylor. Each MCCAA school will pick a home game (preferably a conference game) to collect food for the local food bank.  Food and cash donations collected at the games will be donated to a food bank in the community of each school.  Schools are free to pick their date and if they wish to provide reduced admission prices for donations.  


There schools picked games in the first semester for their Hunger Game dates.  The second semester Hunger Games kick off tomorrow (January 11th) when Henry Ford Community College hosts Schoolcraft College in a MCCAA Eastern Conference Doubleheader.  The women's game tips-off at 1:00 PM, while the men's game will follow at 3:00 PM. We encourage you to pick a date and bring some can goods to your local team's game and help the MCCAA fill up local food banks  Below is a list of the dates for the MCCAA Hunger Games.
