JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (April 4, 2011) - The ETSU men's golf team took some time out of its busy schedule to volunteer at the Second Harvest Food Bank of Northeast Tennessee on Saturday morning.
The Bucs volunteered from 9-12 a.m. on Saturday morning sorting and packaging donated food for distribution to food pantries that provide free food to the less fortunate all over Eastern Tennessee. During its time there, the team was able to sort and package nearly 5000 pounds of food.
