GAINESVILLE, Fla. ÷ In an effort to solicit canned foods for needy families, the Black Law Students Association and John Marshall Bar Association Wednesday are hosting a professor "kiss the pig" charity event.
"We've been doing this charity drive for several years," JMBA President Chris Hand said.
"It's an effort to help donate food to the needy and hungry during the holiday season, and we do that by giving students the opportunity to embarrass their professors."
University of Florida Levin College of Law associate dean Gail Sasnett and law professors Joe Little, Steve Willis, Teresa Rambo and Doug Miller were elected to take part in the event, according to a press release.
Although the BLSA and JMBA have been collecting canned food donations for the past three weeks, the groups traditionally boost their contributions by asking students to donate in the name of a faculty member.
Students place their donations in a box labeled with the respective professor's name and picture.
JMBA members weigh the canned food contributions, and the professor with the most weight has to pucker up.
