The weather may have been cold, but a performance by the Beeline (BHSU Drumline) heated up the streets of Spearfish Friday night.

Thanks to the generosity of area businesses and community members, Black Hills State University delivered more than $700 to the Spearfish Community Food Pantry this week. Donations for the cause were collected during BHSU Night at Downtown Friday Nights Sept. 9 and throughout the past few weeks as students returned to campus.

Area residents and businesses were invited to wear bright green BHSU t-shirts to welcome students and their families back to campus during move-in weekend and during the Friday Night event. In exchange for the shirts, BHSU collected donations for the Food Pantry.

"It makes such a memorable impact to the students and their families as they arrive in Spearfish to see the support and pride our community has in BHSU," said Corinne Hansen, director of University and Community Relations. "It&rsquos a mutual feeling and we&rsquore glad to do our part by working together to raise funds for Spearfish Food Pantry."
