For the past six years, the Marion Military Institute Athletic Department has sponsored an Annual Food Drive to assist local families during the holiday season. “This year we were able to surpass our goal of 400 pounds of canned food items,” said MMI Athletic Director Michelle Ivey. “I want to thank everyone who helped make this year’s food drive a success. Marion’s primary focus is developing leaders for the future and there is no better way to demonstrate leadership than helping out those less fortunate.”
During the month of December fans and supporters of the MMI men’s basketball team received free admission to games with a donation of one canned/non-perishable food item. If unable to attend any home games, students, faculty, and staff were given the opportunity to donate food items at the William R. Ireland Athletic Center.
