Thanksgiving Food Drive

Thanksgiving Food Drive

Giving back to the community is something that the PSA strongly encourages. It comes down to the basic humanistic principle of helping others in need, and connecting with others.

That being said, we would like to announce that for the month of November- from Friday, November 1st, through Tuesday, November 26th– we will be collecting canned goods and non-perishables. These donations will be given to a local food pantry in time for a Thanksgiving.

Join us by bringing donations to our meetings in NAC 6/325, or dropping off your donations in NAC 7/120.

**Participation points will be given to those who donate items and are active in organizing the donation drop-off**
