Backdrop Magazine food drive for Southeast Ohio Food Bank is Dec. 3-8


Backdrop Magazine is hosting a campus-wide food collection drive for the Southeast Ohio Food Bank. The food drive, titled OUnited, will be held Dec. 3-8 in the Baker University Center.

Athens County is currently one of the most impoverished counties located in Southeast Ohio, and hunger and food insecurity are problems for many families.

The OUnited food drive will not only provide food to people in need in Southeast Ohio, but it will give them hope knowing that Ohio University students care and have their back.

More information can be found on Backdrop Magazine's Facebook page, or can be followed on Twitter @BackdropMag and @Backdropmag_PR. The hash tags #OUnited and #WeveGotYourBack will also be used throughout the week.

Backdrop is an entirely student-produced lifestyle magazine in the college town of Athens, Ohio. Founded in 2006, it is an outlet for Ohio University students' perspective on issues including politics, sex and health, entertainment and culture with regard to the university and its surroundings. Readers are primarily students who take an interest in their peers and community.
