A cold morning at Don Reynolds Stadium
Today we’re live-blogging from the University of Arkansas’s Don Reynold’s stadium, where we’re partnering with the Arkansas Razorbacks, and Lift Up America to distribute a truckload of Tyson products to agencies of the Northwest Arkansas Food Bank.
We have Tyson chairman, John Tyson, UofA athletic director, Jeff Long, Dave Hannah, CEO of Lift Up America, and a bunch of Razorback athletes and and spirit squad members, all braving the cold to help load boxes of chicken into trucks, vans and trailers going to non-profit agencies serving the needy in northwest Arkansas.
All of this started five years ago with similar donations involving the Miami Dolphins and the Kansas City Chiefs. This is the third year we’ve done this event with the Razorbacks, one of sixteen such events we’ve done with Lift Up America and college and pro teams this year.
Special shout out to Hugg & Hall for bringing out a forklift to help us get the products off the truck!
