Sign-ups for dodgeball fundraiser this week

Spartans don’t let Spartans go hungry.

The UNCG community has organized a dodgeball tournament to support the Spartan Open Pantry, a food bank for students or employees who need help.

Students, staff or faculty can register for the tournament this week. The Dodge for a Cause tournament takes place April 5. Teams should register online March 24-28; registration cost is $5 per team plus one donated item per team member.

Teams should include at least six people. Each team will collect donations for the pantry, which typically serves 20-30 people each week.

Prizes go to the tournament champions, the team who collects the most donations, and the team sporting the most creative uniforms.

The Spartan Open Pantry is housed in the fellowship hall of College Place United Methodist Church at Spring Garden and Tate streets directly across from the Weatherspoon Art Museum. Distributions are made Tuesdays from 5-9 p.m. or by appointment.

For more details on the tournament, including registration and suggested donation items, visit http://campusrec.uncg.edu/im/dodge/.

If you or someone you know needs food assistance, contact the Dean of Students Office at deanofstudents@uncg.edu or 336-334-5514.

The Spartan Open Pantry also has an online web page at http://sa.uncg.edu/dean/paths/spartan-open-pantry/.

Dodge for a Cause is a joint project of the Dean of Students Office, the Campus Activities Board, Campus Recreation, the Spartan Open Pantry and Wesley-Luther Campus Ministries.
