Food Drive Delivers for Local Pantry

December 4, 2012

The annual campus-wide food drive kicked off on Thursday, October 25th with a roller skating event held in the Student Center. After that, there was a frenzy of activity including filling purple shopping bags, hauling in cans, bake sales, raffles, donating money in pickle jars and writing checks. In addition to the two truck/van loads delivered the week after Thanksgiving, a few more cartons of food and $1,300 in money was handed over today. Once again we overwhelmed our friends at the Dryden Kitchen Cupboard.

In November, the Cupboard served 1385 individuals. The assistance we provide in helping to feed the hungry in our community is priceless and very much appreciated. Thank you all for your efforts!
