Mary Baldwin and the USA South Wrap Up Cans Across the Conference

STAUNTON, Va. – The Mary Baldwin University Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) wrapped up the annual Cans Across the Conference initiative, in coordination with the USA South, this week.

Since classes began this fall until Nov. 21, all 18 of the USA South member institutions participated in the community service competition. Each campus SAAC collected cans and other non-perishable items to benefit a local charity of their choosing. The institution with the most items collected is crowned the Cans Across the Conference Champion.

The MBU SAAC collected 1,374 items, which will be donated to the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank.

In total, conference institutions tallied a record 69,387 items, which is a new record over the 16-year history of the initiative. USA South schools have donated over 575,000 items to various organizations over the 16-year span.

Averett won its fifth-straight Cans Across the Conference title with a total of 29,191 items, which set a new conference record for a single institution.

Cans Across the Conference is one of two SAAC community initiatives the USA South takes part in. Pennies for a Purpose will take place over the spring semester with another opportunity for the institutions to raise funds for local organizations.

Below is a list of the local organizations where the USA South institutions donated their collections:
