Cans & Coats Drive
The Center for Community Engagement partnered with the Freestore Foodbank to deliver basic necessities to our neighbors in need during the 2012 holiday season and cold winter months. Donations were accepted at numerous campus locations and select home athletic events from October 16th - November 2nd. The Freestore Foodbank distributes over 12 million pounds of food annually in 20 counties in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana--but their mission is much greater than simply feeding the hungry. The Freestore Foodbank connects with individuals to provide food and services while working to create stability, and further self-reliance for people in crisis.
The Cans & Coats Drive saught donations of non-perishable food, winter coats, hats, gloves, mittens, scarves and socks for distribution to the most vulnerable among us.
