FORT MYERS, Fla. – This past week, the FGCU women’s golf team took time out of their busy schedules to help out at the local Salvation Army in downtown Fort Myers.
The student-athletes took nonperishable items that were donated and separated them into different food categories (canned pasta, rice, noodles, beans, fruit, carrots, etc.). When these items are donated to the Salvation Army, they must be broken down into these categories before they are distributed out to the families that come in.
The Salvation Army works on separating nonperishable items for about two months before the holiday season due to the large amounts that are donated.
The Salvation Army is a Christian denomination and international movement known for its charity shops and other charity work, operating in over 120 countries.
The Eagles are preparing for their season opener February 4, when they participate in the Hurricane Invitational in Coral Gables, Fla. First round will be on Monday followed by a final round on Tuesday.
