Caitlin Clark partnering with local Iowa-based food pantry during NCAA Tournament run
Caitlin Clark is one of the best players across all of college basketball and could be in line for the National Player of the Year Award this season. Iowa’s superstar is also doing her best to try and give back to the community.
The Coralville Food Pantry in Coralville, Iowa recently announced they were teaming up with Clark to raise money for the organization from March 22-April 22. The goal for the month-long push is $22,000 and the organization is requesting participants to make a $22 donation (or more) to help local families facing food insecurity.
For those unaware (or living under a rock), 22 is Clark’s number on the court for the Hawkeyes. The organization also announced all gifts will be matched dollar-for-dollar by Green State Credit Union. Anyone donating at least $22 will also be entered for a chance to win a signed Caitlin Clark jersey.
