Campus-Wide Food Drive with Oregon Food Bank

The Center for Social Change and Community Involvement is partnering with the Oregon Food Bank, Campus Living, and Athletics to host a food drive as part of our Service Day events honoring the inauguration of president, Dr. Robin Holmes-Sullivan. This campus-wide food drive will run from October 1st- October 24th and we are aiming to engage students, faculty, and staff with collecting the most needed items for our local food pantries.

Additionally, we will have donation bins present at the home sporting events on October 1st (Inauguration Service Day) for spectators to donate upon entry!
