The Angelina College Roadrunner basketball team will open its regular season at home on Thursday, and the players and coaches are asking attending fans to assist in making the holidays better for families in need.
Fans are asked to bring non-perishable food items such as canned or boxed goods in lieu of admission fees to Thursday night’s game against Victoria College. Those items then will be distributed to area families in time to ensure they have a Thanksgiving meal.
The drive is one of several community service-driven events the Roadrunners and Lady Roadrunners will hold throughout the season.
Game time for Thursday’s matchup is 7 p.m. at Shands Gymnasium.
