Campus Ministry Food Drive Oct. 23-29

The 33rd annual Campus Ministry Food Drive is approaching fast. 

From Sunday, Oct. 23, to Saturday, Oct. 29, Campus Ministry will collect non-perishable food items from the surrounding communities. Last year, collected a record 5,825 pounds. 

This is one of the accomplishments that helped Mercyhurst secure the Bread Box Award given annually by the Second Harvest Food Bank. Campus Ministry hopes to keep this momentum going. 

The food is donated to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwestern Pennsylvania, and then is distributed to 275 agencies that directly serve families facing hard times. 

In order to accomplish the goal, the help of the whole campus is needed. 

Campus Ministry will collect non-perishable food from the surrounding neighborhoods from 3 to 8 p.m. daily. Five barrels will be placed on campus in various locations.
