Holiday food drive a success!

Between Nov. 14 and Dec. 14, the Holiday Food Drive successfully collected 375 donation bags of food, exceeding our goal of 300.

All the food donations were directly placed onto the shelves of our student food banks, immediately helping students in need across all three campuses.

We couldn’t have done it without your kind and generous hearts. The Student Association food bank family would like to sincerely thank all faculty, staff and students for all of your support and generous donations!
