Help Local Families During This Holiday Season

From November 14th to December 9th, Campus Recycling & Zero Waste, Residence Life, and Sorority & Fraternity Life are combining efforts to create a food and clothing drive to help local families in Athens County. Donation bins will be in every residence hall, Greek house, and select academic buildings. Any nonperishable and sealed food, as well as gently used clothing, are donatable. Food donations will be provided to children in local schools through Athens County Children's Services. Other food donations will also be given to HAPCAP "Blessing Boxes". Clothing donations will be given to multiple nonprofit groups such as My Sister's Place and The Neighborhood.
