INA, Ill. (Nov. 7, 2013) – Students, community members, faculty and staff are asked to help Rend Lake College’s Learning Resource Center (LRC) fight against hunger by bringing a food donation to the Ina campus for November National Hunger Awareness month.
The LRC Food Drive will be collecting food starting tomorrow, Nov. 8, until Thursday, Nov. 21 at several locations across campus, including the LRC itself. Other locations include the Student Center, both the North and South Oasis, the Administration Building, the Advanced Technology Center, the Bookstore, the Coal Mine Training Center, the Physical Plant, the Applied Science Center, and the RLC Foundation Children’s Center.
In addition to the donation areas across campus, a collection station will be located at three home basketball games. Two men’s games, scheduled for Nov. 11 and 17, and one women’s game on Nov. 16 will each have collection areas in Waugh Gymnasium. Patrons bringing a donation will be offered free admission to the games.
Food items should be non-perishable. The donations will be given to food pantries in RLC’s district. For more information on the LRC Food Drive, contact Beth Mandrell at 618-437-5321, Ext. 1276.
