The Mitchell Weekend Snack Pack Program and Dakota Wesleyan CEO Club (entrepreneur club) will host a food drive during the last home basketball game of the season on Wednesday, Feb. 15, at the Corn Palace.

Each food item donated will earn one raffle ticket toward a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the DWU Campus Bookstore for Tiger merchandise, sponsored by the Kelley Center for Entrepreneurship. The women’s game begins at 6 p.m. and the men’s game at 8 p.m., Feb. 15, with the Tigers facing Northwestern.

The food will be used for the Snack Pack Program, which distributes ready-to-eat meals and snacks to local children. Some items in specific need include macaroni and cheese, 15-ounce cans of beef stew, juice boxes and canned tuna, but any and all non-perishable food items will be accepted and appreciated.
