Members of the University of Minnesota women's basketball team volunteered their time at Feed My Starving Children in Eagan, Minn., Tuesday afternoon as part of their community service efforts over winter break.
The Gophers filled, sealed and packed food pouches that will be sent to starving children around the world, with each pouch providing enough food for six meals. At the end of the experience, the team was informed of the impact their two hours of work will have on the world, and with the help of a handful of additional volunteers, the Gophers filled 42 boxes of food which is the equivalent of 9,072 meals.
The organization also informed the team that the pouches it put together will provide 25 children with a daily meal for an entire year!
The vision of Feed My Starving Children is to strive to eliminate starvation in children throughout the world
by helping to instill compassion in people to hear and respond to the
cries of those in need.
The Minnesota women's basketball team has filmed numerous videos in 2012 that have been used during home games, on Gophersports.com and on Twitter and Facebook. The end products use the best shots and are always professionally produced, but the Gophers have a lot more fun with the videos than their fans get to see.
With 2012 coming to a close and 2013 on the horizon, Gophersports.com gives fans an inside look at some of the best bloopers from the year. Check out all of the fun that the team experiences behind the scenes!
After spending the afternoon shopping for gifts at Target on Tuesday, members of the University of Minnesota women's basketball team delivered packages and holiday cheer to two local families in need on Thursday afternoon.
The Gophers' first stop was in St. Paul, where they were greeted by the family with smiles and joyful tears. Members of the team passed out the gifts and looked on with excitement as each member of the family opened their presents.
After a group photo, the Gophers loaded back into their vehicles and headed to Minneapolis to deliver gifts to their second family. In a special twist, the mother of the three children of the family kept the Gophers' appearance a secret, and were they ever surprised! The four members of the family each opened their gifts and concluded the visit with a photo with the team.
It was so amazing to see the Gophers deliver holiday cheer to these families, and I definitely think that it reminds all of us of the true meaning of the holiday season.
Happy Holidays to your and yours from all of us at Gopher women's basketball!
