A Paw on the Media: Auburn Beats Bama!

The Opelika-Auburn News reports that Auburn beat Alabama in this year's food drive competition. 

In the Beat Bama Food Drive, Auburn's contributors donated 234,116 pounds of food.  Alabama's contributors donated 218,510 pounds.

Auburn set a record with its collections.  The previous high was 212,199 pounds of food in 2008.  Alabama fell short of its record high, 270,915, also in 2008.

Contributions to Auburn's effort will go to the East Alasbama Food Bank.  The West Alabama Food Bank will receive Alabama's.

This year's result brings Auburn's record in the drive to 10 of the last 15 contests and breaks Alabama's 3-year winning streak.

Of course, the best thing about it isn't which side won the friendly competition but rather the level of assistance that will be available to people and families in the coming year. 

That is yet one more thing that we can all be thankful for!

War Eagle!
