POTSDAM — The SUNY Potsdam women's softball team held a food drive on campus at the end of October to collect donations for the Potsdam Snack Pack Program.

The effort was spearheaded by the team's pitcher, Meghan Dougherty, after she learned that the program was running low on funds. She rallied her team and they set up collection points on the campus and started a GoFundMe page.

The team collected a total of 531 individual food servings consisting of cereal, granola bars, oatmeal, juice, apple sauce, and dried fruit. The team also raised over $300 to donate.
