Looking for an easy way to help someone out this holiday season? If so, look no further! Thanks to Snow College student, Savannah Sloan, students, faculty and community members have the opportunity to participate in a food drive to help local families in need during the upcoming holiday season.
The food drive is sponsored by Snow College’s Civic Engagement & Service Learning Program, and is part of Sloan’s Integrated Service Project (ISP), a requirement she is completing for GNST 1100 (Intro to Civic Engagement & Service Learning), and for the Service Scholar Award. Service Scholar is an award students can earn at graduation through completing service learning coursework and community engagement projects.
Students may participate by bringing non-perishable food items (anything such as canned goods or boxed food things that do not need to be refrigerated and are not expired) to collection boxes found in the Humanities Building on campus, Kent’s Market, Roy’s Pizza and Walmart . Donations may be made until November 22. All proceeds will be split between Buster’s Pantry and the Mount Pleasant food banks.
For students who are looking for ways to give back to the community without delving into their pocketbooks or who are feeling pressed for time, this is the perfect opportunity! It doesn’t take much to drop off a few canned goods on your way to class! Or you can purchase a few extra groceries on your next shopping trip and add them to the donation box on your way out of the store.
Snow College student, Brianna Ekker commented that, “After donating to the food drive, I walked away with a huge smiled on my face! It was great knowing that I was able to help make someone’s holiday special by helping in that small way. It warms my heart and keeps a smile on my face every time I see the donation box!”
Remember, donations must be made by November 22 and can be placed in the boxes found in the Humanities building, Kent’s Market, Roy’s Pizza and Walmart. Make this holiday season special today by donating to the food drive.
