Davidson College Selling Shirts at Games to Raise Money for Local Charities

Davidson Wildcats

WCNC-NBC’s Diana Rugg reported that during February, Davidson College “is selling T-shirts to support a handful of charities.”

During Saturday’s game, over 5,000 fans donned black shirts for the 3rd annual Blackout Belk. The $15 shirts support Hammers, “a local charity that uses student volunteers to fix up homes of elderly and disabled residents.”

This coming Saturday, on Valentine’s Day, the school “is selling pink T-shirts and donating ticket sales” from the women’s game to the Kay Yow Foundation supporting breast cancer research. Rugg added that “a whole day of activities for girls is planned around the game,” including a basketball clinic and discounted tickets.

Then on February 21, Davidson is selling white T-shirts “for White Out, the Andrew Lovedale Shoe Drive.” Lovedale, a senior from Nigeria, “brings shoes and other athletic equipment to Nigeria’s poor when he visits each summer.” Fans “who want to donate shoes can also bring new basketball shoes to the game” (Diana Rugg, WCNC-NBC, 2/8).
