SAC is partnering with UMW students and Sodexo in an effort to end hunger in our area.  All SAC donations between November 4th and November 10th will be added to our student athletes’ Stop Hunger Now campaign.

The SAC campaign and our student Athletes’ campaign both benefit the Fredericksburg Area Food Bank.
