Staff Senate Holiday Food Drive a Success!
UK Staff Senate Holiday Food Drive December 2012 We are proud to announce the food drive for God's Pantry was highly successful, bringing in 1,171 pounds of food and $500 in cash donations! Thanks to everyone for your support. Special thanks goes to Worldwide Equipment for transporting the goods and also to our great students here at UK! Senator Grant Wilson of Ovid's shared this story: "The students used their extra remaining meal plans to buy non-perishables from our shelves and donate them to the bin. Once a few people started seeing the bin and donated this way, it just caught on and a lot of others followed to the point where stuff was just everywhere! It's encouraging since those students could have easily packed those items out for themselves, but instead chose to make that effort to donate. We aren't allowed to let them donate meal swipes, but they can purchase items with their swipes and donate those items." We also would like to acknowledge the Engineering Staff Council who coordinated in that college and area to collect a significant amount of food.
