Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive

10/27/2011 —
Penn State Lehigh Valley Student Affairs is holding its annual Thanksgiving Food Drive beginning Oct. 31. Donations from the food drive create complete Thanksgiving meals for families served by the Sixth Street Shelter in Allentown. The drive accepts donations of turkey, stuffing, canned vegetables, cranberry sauce, gravy, rolls, pumpkin pie and juice, as well as monetary donations to purchase those items. Donations can be dropped off in the Student Affairs office, room 214, beginning Nov. 1.

This year, about 20 students from the campus' First Year Experience course will assist with the food drive as part of a mandatory service project. To kick off the drive, the students as well as others from the campus community will gather on Oct. 31 to discuss hunger in the Lehigh Valley and begin accepting pledges.

On Nov. 18, the campus community will gather to sort, load and deliver all of the donations to the Sixth Street Shelter.
