U of M Athletics join Land O’Lakes employees at Kids in Need for #GivingTuesday

Being ready to learn and succeed includes having the right school supplies. That’s why several Athletics Dept. staff and former Golden Gopher athletes recently teamed up with Land O’Lakes employees to assemble backpacks full of free school supplies. The backpacks are distributed to families struggling with poverty in rural communities where Land O’Lakes co-workers live and work.

The November 29 event was held at the Kids In Need Foundation in Roseville, Minnesota as part of #GivingTuesday. Learn more

Thank you, Land O’Lakes, for coordinating the event!
