Third Annual Food Drive Hosted to Support Local Food Bank

SILOAM SPRINGS, Arkansas (Oct. 24, 2016) – John Brown University's men's basketball season
tips off Saturday, Oct. 29 at 7 p.m. at the 36th Annual Toilet Paper Game, powered by Kimberly-
Clark, as the Golden Eagles face Central Baptist (Arkansas) in the Bill George Arena.


JBU TP games 2016

A tradition that began in the early 1980s, the Toilet Paper Game invites JBU fans to toss a roll of
toilet paper onto the court after JBU's first field goal, incurring a technical foul. USA Today
described it as the "best technical foul in all of sports" and Sports Weekly listed the game as a
"top fan tradition in college basketball."


This year, JBU has teamed up with Kimberly-Clark to provide the Manna Center, a local food
bank, with non-perishable food items as part of the annual food drive. Kimberly-Clark will supply
2,016 rolls of Scott 1000 toilet paper to be donated to the Manna Center and 2,000 rolls of
Cottonelle toilet paper for the toss. Spectators will receive a roll of Cottonelle toilet paper in
exchange for non-perishable food items.

 

"The Toilet Paper Game is timed perfectly to anticipate the shortage food pantries experience
during the holiday season,"

Robyn Daugherty, JBU athletic director, said. "With the support of Kimberly-Clark and thousands of JBU fans, we're excited for the opportunity to make a significant contribution to our local ommunity."


With more than 2,900 canned food items donated over the last two years, the food drive for the
Manna Center is part of the Sooner Athletic Conference's "The SAC Gives Back" initiative.
