Starting tomorrow, the Student Employment Center (SEC) will organize its third annual canned food drive lasting until Friday, Nov. 15.

Nonperishable items can be delivered to the Rosenwald Building, the RAC, the Career Services office in the Williams Center, the main hall in the College of Business Administration, at the information desk in Russell Union and the College of Education.

All items collected will be delivered to the Statesboro Food Bank where families can come and pick up food, Kyle Herman, human resources coordinator and the canned food drive coordinator, said.

“We are not aware of the exact number of items given by students, but a large number of students, employees, faculty and staff donate items,” Demetrius Bynes, director of the Student Employment Center, said.

If students want to help out with the food drive and volunteer their time, they can go through the Student Leadership and Civic Engagement office.

Bynes said, “It’s a small way that our campus can give back to the Statesboro community.”
