HATTIESBURG, Miss.  – Justin Defee, left, a University of Southern Mississippi student from San Angelo, Texas and Skye Crutcher of Olive Branch, Miss. sort donated canned goods Tuesday at the university’s Hattiesburg campus. Defee and Crutcher are volunteering with the Southern Miss Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) and the university’s Office of Community Service Learning to fight hunger in the Hattiesburg area as part of “Let’s SAAC Hunger Week.” The canned goods will be donated to Christian Services and the Edwards Street Fellowship Center in Hattiesburg.

The effort is part of the Conference-USA initiative to unite all member institutions through conference-wide community outreach. The winning institution will be determined by the weight of canned goods donated.  Other Southern Miss organizations partnering in the canned food drive include the Residence Hall Association, Greek Life and the Office of Student Activities, among others.
