Team and staff members from South Carolina Men's Basketball and Baseball went out to Oliver Gospel Mission leading up to Thanksgiving to help pack holiday meals for donation to needy families in the Columbia area.

"We've grown from packing about 50 boxes in 2002 to about 1,000 boxes that were distributed last year and this year," explained Oliver Gospel Mission President/CEO Wayne Fields.

In years past, the Men's Basketball team has gone to the Mission to help serve dinner on Thanksgiving Day, but this year they will be out in Las Vegas for a tournament.

"To be able to pack some boxes to make sure families could have Thanksgiving dinner is something we wanted to make sure we did," said Coach Horn. "We always have a great time helping out with Oliver Gospel Mission which does such great work in the Columbia area."

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in Gamecock Nation!
