A partnership between the United Dairy Industry of Michigan and the Grand Valley Athletics Department will benefit Replenish, the university’s student food bank and food resource.
For each 3-pointer made by the men’s and women’s basketball teams this season, either at a home or away game, the United Dairy Industry of Michigan will donate a gallon of milk to Replenish.
Deputy Director of Athletics for External Relations Doug Lipinski said the department was excited about the opportunity to play a role in helping students.
“We know that 1 in 5 college students are hungry,” said Lipinski.
“The opportunity to combine our athletics success while collaborating to bring greater awareness and financial resources to this hidden crisis is one way we are reaching higher to enrich the student experience at GVSU.”
