Colonials Expand Annual Thanksgiving Basket Collection

WASHINGTON -- For the fifth year in a row, the George Washington lacrosse team is sponsoring a Thanksgiving basket collection, dubbed Colonial Harvest, to provide food and toiletries to local families in need during the holidays. This fall the squad has expanded the scope of the annual project to include The Store, GW's newly opened food pantry for students.

"We are proud to spearhead the Colonial Harvest community service project again this year," said head coach Tracy Coyne. "We love it because it gives us the opportunity to directly impact the local community in a positive way by offering food assistance to local families and give an extra boost to the Foggy Bottom Food Pantry during the holiday season. The entire GW Community really stepped up with a truly generous heart to support Colonial Harvest last fall. I know we are capable of matching that generosity this year."
