The VolShop will celebrate with a prize for each student who donates a canned food item to the Second Harvest Food Bank. With the partnership between VolShop and Center for Leadership and Service, students also have the opportunity to donate food items at select locations across campus.

In addition to the Second Harvest Food Bank donation, VolShop will further illustrate the spirit of volunteering with Jumpstart’s Read for the Record. Held also on October 3, Read for the Record is a program to encourage reading in children. The VolShop has invited local kindergarten students to come and hear the reading of Otis, by Loren Long. Student athletes have volunteered to share the day to show children the benefits of reading and the delight of volunteering. For more information, e-mail tjamison@utk.edu.
