GW basketball player SirValiant Brown will host a food drive Friday night to benefit local charities.
Brown will host the event to help So Others Might Eat, a homeless shelter located at 71 O St., NW, that offers food, clothing, housing and job training.
Last year I was seeing so many homeless people and I didn’t like it, Brown said.
Brown distributed fliers throughout campus to publicize the event.
Students can drop off non-perishable food at collection boxes at the Smith Center entrance during Midnight Madness, the official kick-off to the 2000-01 basketball season, Friday night.
