By Coach Josh Nichols –
For the 10th straight year, Bacone College Center for Christian Ministry has sponsored a Holiday Food/Toy Drive.
The Bacone College Athletic Department, participating in the drive once again, set the bar high with a goal of providing over 100 families with a Holiday meal in the Muskogee area.
Athletic Director Alan Foster said, “It’s is a great way for our student athletes to give back to the community. Our coaches do a good job of supporting this event that brings the whole campus together.”
The campus goal was set at 200 meals and this year Bacone will provide food for 250 meals. The campus also provides toys to the Salvation Army for their Angel Tree program for children under 12 years of age.
In addition to the Holiday Food/Toy drive the Bacone Softball and Baseball team donated 12 smoked hams each to the Wish Foundation and the Murrow Indian Children’s Home in Muskogee.
