LSU FOOTBALL HELP THE BATON ROUGE FOOD BANK ONCE AGAIN


By LONN PHILLIPS SULLIVAN

Once again, Head Coach Brian Kelly sent his Tigers out into the community for some simultaneous team-building and humanitarian outreach:

Returning to the Baton Rouge Food Bank, where LSU Football were put to work last season, the team assisted in packing 1,800 boxes, 30,000 pounds of food, on top of 1,500 pounds of dried beans, spending nearly 2 hours packing.

WR Chris Hilton Jr was there for his 3rd volunteer trip in the last few weeks:

“It makes you feel good to give back,” LSU wide receiver Chris Hilton Jr told LSU sports information. “We have great support from our community so to be able to do something like this in return is a good feeling. I know coming here means a lot to our team. Days like today are meaningful. As LSU football players, we have so much to be thankful for so to volunteer our time to help those in need gives us a sense of pride knowing that we are helping make a difference.”

New transfer edge rusher Ovie Oghoufo also shared a few thoughts on his experience:

“To have the opportunity to be part of what we did as a team today is a good thing. We were able to bond as a team while doing something worthwhile for the community. It makes you feel good knowing that our time this afternoon was spent helping those who are less fortunate.”

Head Coach Brian Kelly was on hand, alongside his wife Paqui and daughter Grace, check out the photos below:
