Food Drive: Phase Two

The Food Drive continues . . .

First, a hearty thank you for all the generous donations we received during Ohio State-Michigan Food Drive (at least the Buckeyes won something against Michigan this year).

Here is what we have collected so far.


Now Phase Two

Between now and 11 January 2012 each advisory can collect canned and non-perishable food. 
The advisory that collects the most will win a pizza lunch courtesy of the good people at Vito's pizza.

All the donations will be given to the Martin Luther King Kitchen for the Poor.

Here is a Blade article (and photo gallery) that highlights the good work that this organization provides to the community.
