Enactus Food Drive

LORAIN COUNTY COMMUNITY COLLEGE ENACTUS TEAM KICKS OFF HARVEST FOR HUNGER CAMPAIGN

The Lorain County Community College Enactus Team (formerly known as Students in Free Enterprise) has kicked off a campus-wide food drive campaign running now through Sunday, March 31.  The students are seeking canned food donations in effort to help fight hunger in our community. 

One in six people receive emergency food assistance in the region served by Second Harvest Food Bank of North Central Ohio.  The students have set a goal of collecting 5,000 cans of food that will be donated to Second Harvest.

Donations can be dropped off at the LCCC main campus on the first floor of each building, or at the LCCC Learning Centers in Wellington, Brunswick, and Lorain, Ohio.

This effort is also part of a nationwide challenge issued to college Enactus Teams by Campbell’s Soup Company through their Let’s Can Hunger campaign.  Enactus is an international non-profit organization active on more than 1,400 college campuses in 48 countries.  Enactus Teams are comprised of “student, academic and business leaders committed to using the power of entrepreneurial action to transform lives and shape a better, more sustainable world.”

For more information contact Professor Maria McConnell, LCCC Enactus Advisor at mcconnel@lorainccc.edu or the LCCC Enactus Team at enactus@lorainccc.edu.
