2012 Governor's Holiday Hoops Classic

The University of Virginia participated in the 2012 Governor's Holiday Hoops Classic, a basketball doubleheader to benefit Virginia's Food Banks. The results of the food drive will be released soon.

A recent study by Feeding America found that more than 1,012,500 Virginians are considered "food insecure." Many of these individuals are children, senior citizens, adults with disabilities, and the new face of hunger - individuals who have lost their jobs and are having problems making ends meet. In December 2012 and 2013, the Richmond Coliseum will be the site of what will certainly be exciting games in support of the Commonwealth's Food Banks.

The Governor's Holiday Hoops Classic began on November 15 and runs through December 15. All donations through U.Va. will support the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank.
