PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) — More than 20 ASU football players spent Tuesday morning packing cars full of food boxes at St. Mary’s Food Bank.
“It’s kinda tradition when they get into a bowl game, have that extra time in December, they come down here and help us out,” said Jerry Brown from St. Mary’s food bank.
The Sun Devils will face off against Wisconsin in the Las Vegas Bowl later this month.
Ghalee Wadood who is on ASU’s coaching staff said the team never misses an opportunity to give back.
“People in need, people giving, it’s just a win all the way around,” said Ghalee Wadood, ASU’s director of player development.
“Being able to provide some basic necessities for families… is something special,” said ASU Offensive Lineman Corey Stephens.
Stephens graduated from Saguaro high before joining ASU and is happy to give back to the community he grew up in.
“It’s absolutely special being able to have small conversations with people in their cars is just great. I hope they like seeing us out here. I hope they have a wonderful holiday season because they deserve it,” said Stephens. “Thank you to everybody who donated this food. Being able to put it in hands and provide it to these people is really great.”
