CHESTER, Pa. (Oct. 12, 2015) – The Widener football team will host a food drive to benefit the food pantry organized by LifeWerks, Inc. beginning this Saturday, October 17th against Misericorida.

Fans attending any of the remainder Widener football games, can drop off non-perishable food items in participating bins located on the concourse of Leslie C. Quick Stadium.

“In conjunction with the mission of Widener University, we find it important to use our platform of athletics to give back to the community,” said head coach Mike Kelly. “Our team is fortunate to have something to eat every day, and we ask our fans at each game to help us by providing a canned good for those less fortunate than us.”

LifeWerks, Inc. located in Wallingford, Pa., works to serve those who find it difficult to afford food. Created in 1997, the non-profit started its mission as a mentoring program by providing leadership training, media/arts and impacting the next-generation through hunger outreach and community engagement.
