Feeding the Hungry: August Canned Food Drive Week 8/13 – 8/17

Feeding the Hungry: August Canned Food Drive Week 8/13 – 8/17

Stanbridge College REACH is excited to announce its August Canned Food Drive starting August 13th!

In our last food drive in the spring, students and staff donated over 500 lbs of canned food and other food items to help the Second Harvest Food Bank Orange County eliminate hunger in Orange County. But hunger doesn’t stop for over half a million people in Orange County. Let’s work together to continue to support the hungry, homeless and needy.

Cohort Competitions – Win FREE Ice Cream Treats!

In June, FTV donated over 150 cans to support the June Canned Food Drive! Congratulations FTV!

For this food drive, we once again encourage each cohort to compete to donate the most cans! The cohort who donates the most will receive FREE ice cream treats!

If your cohort would like to participate, please select a representative to drop off cans throughout the week to the Media and Communications team in room 202 Monday through Friday 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. We will track the amounts donated and tally the cans at the end of the week (Friday, August 17th). The cohort with the most donations will receive a free ice cream treat (one per person) and recognition on the Stanbridge College blog, Facebook and other media.

Participation is optional, but we think a little healthy competition is always good to inspire service to our community.

Event Details:

If you are able to, we encourage donations of any canned food or non perishable food items including beans, vegetables, meats, soup, fruit and more.

Date: August 13 – 17, 2012
Location: Please drop off any donations in the bins located in the Student Lounge or the parking lot entrance of building 2041.

More than half a million people go hungry in Orange County. Let’s fight hunger together. Support our Orange County community and give back to those in need.
