Go Gophers!
With fall semester classes coming to close, members of the Minnesota women's basketball team will take advantage of their free time over winter break by giving back to families and children in need in the Twin Cities community. In the weeks ahead, the Golden Gophers will be volunteering their time at Feed my Starving Children and the Minneapolis Children's Hospital, and have also adopted two families through Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Greater Twin Cities for the holiday season.

Members of the team will take the families' holiday wish lists to Target on Tuesday, Dec. 18, to buy gifts and will then deliver those gifts to the families before Christmas.

After spending time with their own families over the holidays, the Gophers will get back to work on Tuesday, Jan. 8, hand-packing meals specifically formulated for malnourished children that will be shipped to nearly 70 countries around the world at Feed my Starving Children in Eagan, Minn.

The Gophers are also set to visit children at the Minneapolis Children's Hospital on Monday, Jan. 14.

Below you will find a schedule of events in which the Gophers are set to participate:

Tuesday, December 18th: Shop for families though Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Greater Twin Cities
Tuesday, January 8th
