The UConn Division of Athletics and the UConn Office of Environmental Policy announced today that they will host a Green Game Day on Wednesday at the UConn men’s basketball team takes on Georgetown at 7:00 p.m. in Gampel Pavilion. Fans are encouraged to bring any lightly sneakers to donate for reuse — especially children’s shoes. These shoes will go to Kicks for Africa, a UConn student run organization whose mission it is to donate lightly used shoes to less fortunate children in Africa. The shoes will be collected at all entrances as fans enter the game.
The Office of Environmental Policy, the EcoHusky student group and EcoHouse have been collaborating with the UConn Division of Athletics to host Green Game Days at a variety of athletic venues since 2008.
