Minneapolis, MINN - The North Central University Athletics Department was pleased to present nearly 5,000 articles of clothing to two local Twin Cities charities during its daily chapel service on Thursday, March 26, 2009.
The chapel service was coordinated and facilitated by NCU's Athletic Department. Student athletes gathered articles of clothing for over a month during a clothing drive that concluded on March 31, 2009. Proceeds from the drive were given to the Salvation Army of Minneapolis along with The Union Gospel Mission of St. Paul.
The purpose of the clothing drive was to take advantage of an opportunity to bless those who are in a less fortunate situation in the metro area. As a result, NCU athletes illustrated that the month of March is not only about brackets, tournaments and championships but can represent something much more that will truly affect the lives of those within their community.
