As we countdown to the big game on the field with the Brawl of the Wild the annual competition is already happening off the field between Griz fans and Cats fans. Donations are being accepted all over town with this year's efforts for Missoula to be victorious with the Can the Cats Canned Food Drive.

There's a long list of places where you can donate around Missoula and on the campus of the University of Montana. One convenient spot is a number of grocery stores around town. All Albertson's locations, the Walmart on Mullan Rd., Rosauers, and WinCo are all accepting donations, making it easy for you to drop off before or after you shop for groceries.

In addition to the different places that you can choose to donate there are also a number of activities around town that are tied into donations.

- Tuesday, November 9th: STUFF THE TRUCK
Bring perishable AND non-perishable food donations to the Missoula Food Bank & Community Center. Donations will be accepted from 12 PM - 6 PM at 1720 Wyoming St.

- Tuesday, November 9th: Donate 6 cans = FREE ADMISSION to Griz Basketball
Bring your donations to the Adams Center and get free admission to BOTH games. Lady Griz tipoff at 5 PM and Griz Men's Basketball play at 7:30 PM.

 - Monday, November 15th: STUFF THE BUS

One other event of note, our radio stations will be broadcasting live from the different Albertson's locations around Missoula on Friday, November 12th. Stop by any Albertson's from 3 PM - 6 PM and drop off your donations while we're on-site with the food bank.

I do have to say it's been pretty nice to have the bragging rights for the past twelve months after Missoula came out on top of last year's food drive. Hopefully, we'll be able to keep our chest puffed out after another victory this year!
