Student Food Pantry Collection on Opening Day – 8/23/12

We are in need of your help to stock the GRCC Student Food Pantry for the year! We are asking that you bring an item on the list (but feel free to bring more!) to the Opening Day celebration so that we can reach our goal of collecting 1,000 pounds of food before the first day of the Fall 2012 semester! Since February 2012, we have filled 250 bags with food and served over 72 students and their families. Please help us provide for even more students in 2012-2013!

For full details, see this flyer (.pdf).
