PCC Bookstore running student food drive Oct. 5-9 at all campuses

Photos and Story by

For PCC students, there’s a great chance to give back to your own.

The PCC Bookstore is hosting a canned food drive from Monday through Friday, Oct. 5-9. Students are encouraged to help out fellow students who are in need by donating non-perishable canned foods. Collection boxes will be located at all of PCC’s bookstores. The food collected will be donated to each campus’ ASPCC food canteen to benefit students who can’t afford meals. The effort is part of National Student Day (Oct. 8) sponsored by the National Association of College Bookstores.

Need information on the food canteens? Here are links to each campus’ food stores for hungry students: Rock Creek, Sylvania, Cascade and Southeast.

For more information on the PCC Bookstore Canned Food Drive, call (971) 722-4704, or email sheryl.keele@pcc.edu.
