On Friday, April 6 and Saturday, April 14, Texas Softball and Baseball host canned food drives. UT Athletics looks to build on the successful program that has collected over 19,600 pounds of canned food items over the last five years. Help your community and support UT Athletics by participating in this great event.
Canned food items will be collected at the Texas Softball vs. Missouri game on Friday, April 6 at 7 p.m. (presented by AT&T), as well as the Texas Baseball vs. Oklahoma State game on Saturday, April 14 at 3 p.m. (presented by Texaco). Fans who donate five non-perishable food items at either game receive a voucher for one FREE Texas apparel item (adult sizes only; sizes and colors subject to availability; limit one per person; while supplies last) and a coupon for a FREE Whataburger (while supplies last).
At the softball game, collection begins at 6 p.m. inside the McCombs Field concourse along the first base side. At baseball, collection will begin at 1:30 p.m. inside the home plate gate on the third base side of UFCU Disch-Falk Field. To be eligible to receive the Texas apparel item and the coupon, fans must purchase a ticket to the game separately. Fans may purchase tickets online at TexasBoxOffice.com or by calling the UT Athletics Ticket Office at (512) 471-3333.
UT Athletics canned food drives are part of the Horns for Hope initiative for community enrichment.
