In the recent texting challenge between the Wolf Pack and Boston College fans, Kraft has just announced that the Wolf Pack Fans have successfully sent more texts than Boston College resulting in a 20,000-meal donation from Kraft to the Food Bank of Northern Nevada. The Wolf Pack will also receive an additional meal for each text sent. Wolf Pack fans came out in support of this challenge with so much excitement and commitment for which the Food Bank is so grateful for the participation.
Kraft created the text challenge for fans of each team to help make a difference with hunger issues in their region. Wolf Pack fans texted the word Nevada followed by a space and then their zip code to 71717 to show their support. Boston College fans are encouraged to text a similar message.
