2002-03 Lady Bulldog Community Outreach programs:
Every Christmas season the Lady Bulldogs adopt a local family in need and donate perishables and gifts.
Elementary Schools in the area are assigned a player to watch and support throughout the season.
MSU coaches annually invite coaches from around the area to come and learn for a day from Lady Bulldog basketball.
Guest Coach program
Coach Fanning invites people of the university, community and even celebrities to come and be a guest coach for a game and experience Lady Bulldog basketball from the inside.
Each basketball player is paired up with a member of the faculty or staff at MSU to cultivate a relationship.
Very Special Arts
Is a day of fun and learning through the arts for children and adults with disabilities. The Lady Bulldogs help the participants decorate goody bags that they use to carry their art projects and prizes.
