Donate to the Mobile Food Pantry

Help your fellow students in need.  Please donate non-perishable items to the Mobile Food Pantry. Purple collections bins are at the entrances to every college building except for the Library.  The amount of food collected so far this year has not met the needs of our students.  Let’s catch up quickly by bringing items and dropping them in the purple bins. The VIBE club collects the food on a regular basis.  Thanks to all of you for what you can do to help others.
