RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The Felician University women's basketball team will sponsor its ninth annual "Shoot For Hunger" holiday food drive during the women's and men's home doubleheader against Caldwell University on Wednesday, November 16, at 5:30 and 8 p.m.
Fans attending either game are asked to bring a non-perishable food item. Donations will be collected in the lobby of Job Gymnasium beginning at 5 p.m. until halftime of the men's game.
