Cadets Donate 8,000 Cans of Food to Local Charities

 

“The canned food drive started a couple of years ago,” MMA Operations Coordinator Capt. Thomas Roberts said. “The boys raise the funds, and with help from the staff, they go out and buy the cans from local vendors.”
 
Roberts said the MMA food drive is all about giving back to Mexico.
 
“We do this for the community the boys live in,” he said. “To many of them, this is a second home. Some are here for six years.”
 
Being part of the food drive, Roberts said, is something he looks forward to every year.
 
“Watching the boys work so hard at raising the money and then assisting with the delivery is a blast,” he said.
