food bank logoThe Kappa Beta Delta food drive was a success thanks to all who participated during this busy time of year. A sincere thank you goes to Professor Whitten and Margo Feldman for assisting with the food drive this year. Both of them have done this in the past, and having them help along the way made everything easier.

A big thank you to the Honors Club and Phi Theta Kappa! The honors club assisted with preparing the barrels around campus, and Phi Theta Kappa made posters to place next to the barrels. Both clubs also helped promote the food drive by sending emails to their members and bringing it up during their meetings.

Many departments on campus contributed. The Bookstore helped by providing the proper materials needed to move the barrels and place them around campus. The Math, Science and Technology Department collected nearly a full barrel by their office. The Learning Center raised a lot of food as well and was close to a full barrel!

Overall the food drive was a success, collecting 2,400 pounds and over $1,000 in donations. Thanks again and Happy Holidays!
