Thanksgiving Food Drive- Happening Now!

By Kiki Morrill

Have you been wondering what the orange boxes around campus are all about? Look no further; the Student Senate’s second annual Thanksgiving Food Drive is happening now! Student Senate has partnered with Phi Theta Kappa this year to collect food to donate to benefit the Captain’s Cupboard on campus for this Thanksgiving season.

The team’s goal is to help our community by gathering together and supporting each other. While the food drive mainly focuses on collecting non-perishable foods in the boxes, there are other ways to pitch in too! Hygiene product donations are accepted, but unopened whole packages & boxes are strongly preferred. Perishable food donations contributors should contact

If you don’t have the ability to donate goods, consider donating your time! Volunteer at the Captain’s Cupboard to help increase accessibility for students; email inquiries to The Food Drive will run until the 22nd of November, but just because the boxes are gone doesn’t mean you missed your chance! Contact the Captain’s Cupboard to set up a time to donate your goods after the drive ends. Happy Thanksgiving!
