Saturday, November 8th, has been designated as the 'Let's Beat Samford, Lets Beat Hunger' event. Eagle Sports Marketing is teaming up with corporate sponsor Harvey’s Supermarkets for the Hunger Challenge. As the Eagles prepare to face the Samford Bulldogs amidst the Homecoming festivities on November 8th, the members of Eagle Nation will be called upon to help Georgia Southern Athletics defeat hunger by donating non-perishable canned food items at all local Harvey’s Supermarkets in Bulloch County, the Eagle Sports Marketing Offices in Hanner Fieldhouse, and on the day of the game at Paulson Stadium.

The challenge will begin on Monday October 20th and culminate with the homecoming festivities on November 8th. The goal for the 2008 challenge is 2000 pounds of food donations to the Bulloch County Food Bank.

Georgia Southern Athletics needs everyone’s help to make 'Let's Beat Samford, Lets Beat Hunger' a huge success
