Virginia Tech Marching Virginians to collect nonperishable food items during football game

If you have extra soup, ravioli, or canned fruit, the Virginia Tech Marching Virginians will be collecting them at the game tomorrow.

BLACKSBURG, Va. – If you have extra cans of soup, ravioli, or fruit, bag them up and bring them with you to the Hokies game on Saturday.

The Virginia Tech Marching Virginians will be collecting the food items at the Hokie game on Saturday for their 26th Annual Hokies for the Hungry Food Drive.

The Marching Virginians will be walking around going from tailgate to tailgate playing music and collecting nonperishable foods.

They will also be outside every gate for fans to donate on their way into the game.

The donations are going to the Montgomery County Christmas Store to be made into Thanksgiving food baskets for families.

Last year, the band collected 15,000 cans and hopes to raise even more this year.
