Students double food drive efforts

Food Drive

Students, faculty and staff at Mercyhurst University – The North East Campus collected nearly 1,000 pounds of food for the North East Food Pantry during their annual Thanksgiving food drive.

Student volunteers transported 972 pounds of food – more than double the amount collected in last fall’s food drive – to the pantry on Nov. 19. Rachel Pacholke, assistant student life director, coordinates the biannual event. The next food drive will take place in the spring.
