Following their 57-49 victory over NJIT on Saturday, St. John’s headed across the country to face the San Francisco Dons. Before that however, they took their talents to battling hunger in the Bay Area.

The Storm arrived at their hotel in San Francisco early sunday morning. After a bit of sleep the team headed out to the San Francisco Food Bank where players and personnel alike joined together with 22,000 others to help out those less fortunate.

The San Francisco Food Bank is one of the biggest facilities of its kind in the country. Storm players decided to make it even larger as they lent a helping hand.

“This really shows what St. John’s stands for, giving back to the community, and helping people who are not able to help themselves,” said senior God’sgift Achiuwa. “To be part of this program and this institution is a privilege, for us it’s not just about coming to school and playing basketball. It’s more than that.”

Aciuwa is also a member of the St. John’s University President’s Society, where he actively helps spread the Vincentian message of the school.

The Johnnies have one more thing to beat while they are in San Francisco, as the team faces the Dons Tuesday night at 10 PM Eastern Time.
