‘Hoops For Hunger’ to Benefit Cluster Outreach in Pottstown

by Alana J. Mauger

The Montgomery County Community College Mustangs Men’s Basketball Team, in coordination with the College’s Honors and Rotaract clubs, will hold its annual “Hoops for Hunger” donation drive now through Dec. 13. All proceeds will benefit the Cluster Outreach in Pottstown.

Non-perishable goods are being collected in boxes throughout the College’s campuses in Blue Bell and Pottstown through Dec. 13, as well as at every home basketball game during the month of November. Visit mustangsathletics.com for a full schedule.

For the first time, monetary donations are also being accepted online. Click here or visit Yougivegoods.com and search for “Hoops for Hunger.” Then, click “Donate to this Drive” and select the items you want to purchase via Visa, Mastercard or American Express. The purchased food will be shipped directly to the Cluster Outreach at the end of the drive.

The community is invited to join the Mustangs on Nov. 21 at 7 p.m. for a poverty awareness home basketball game in the College’s Physical Education Center, 340 DeKalb Pike, Blue Bell. Information about local poverty issues will be available, and students from Gwynedd-Mercy University will be bringing food donations they collected in support of “Hoops for Hunger.” Admission is free of charge, but attendees are encouraged to bring a food donation.

For additional information, contact the College’s Office of Student Leadership & Involvement at 610-718-1852 or getinvolved@mc3.edu.
