MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – Recently the Bobcat soccer team hosted a “Salvation Army/Barberitos Night” where students were encouraged to donate to the Salvation Army. For every piece of clothing they brought, they got a chance to win a $50 certificate to Barberitos.
“The Salvation Army promotion went very well,” said Assistant Athletic Director and Senior Woman Administrator Ginger Chaffinch. “We had a lot of participation from the general student body. I was very pleased with the involvement, and the Salvation Army was very appreciative of Georgia College’s donations.”
GC Athletics is very excited about their recent involvement with local charities and they hope to continue that success for years to come.
The Georgia College Department of Athletics, back-to-back winners of the PBC Commissioner's Cup, sponsors 10 varsity athletic programs at the NCAA Division II level. As a Division II program, Bobcat Athletics prides itself on balancing the life of the student-athlete, evidenced by the teams' multiple appearances in post-season competition as well as documented academic success and community-service involvement.
