KNOXVILLE, Tenn. Knoxville, TN - The 22nd annual Tim Kerin Memorial Towel Drive will be held Saturday, October 5th before the Tennessee vs. Georgia home game.
Second Harvest Food Bank of East Tennessee, volunteers, staff and the students of the University of Tennessee Ministers Council will be collecting donations and distributing UT Power Towels for a suggested $5 donation.
The orange and white Power Towels will be available outside of every gate at Neyland Stadium, two hours prior to kickoff. Second Harvest Food Bank is asking fans to make a donation in exchange for the Power Towel or give $1, enough to provide 3 meals.
“We are so grateful to the University of Tennessee and their fans for supporting Second Harvest Food Bank and this outstanding fundraiser in memory of Tim,” said Elaine Streno, Executive Director of Second Harvest. “100% of the proceeds collected before the game will benefit Second Harvest Food Bank and will be used to provide food to hungry families in East Tennessee.”
Tim Kerin made a huge impact on UT and the Knoxville community. He came to UT in 1976 as the Head Athletic Trainer. Kerin was honored as Trainer of the Year by the Tennessee Athletic Trainers Society in 1992 and was elected posthumously into The National Athletic Trainers Association Hall of Fame in 1993.
Sponsors of this year’s Tim Kerin Memorial Drive are Arby’s, Knoxville Orthopedic Clinic, Power Systems and Gatorade.
