The Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) has chosen to designate items collected during their annual food drive to organizations who will directly assist Long Islanders affected by Hurricane Sandy. The SAAC is a leadership organization made up of more than 40 Stony Brook University varsity student-athletes who volunteer their time and effort throughout the year to support educational and leadership opportunities which help others. The student-athletes represent all 20 Stony Brook varsity teams. The Food Drive is one of SAAC's annual events through which they have collected thousands of items which have been donated to local food banks and charities.
