Collegewide Food and Fund Drive led by the Center for Distance Learning

This year, we are celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the Student Academic Conference and in honor of this milestone we are adding some fun new things to the conference!

The college has a strong connection to our communities where we work and study.  We want to honor our 10th Anniversary by giving back.  This year at the Student Academic Conference we are asking students to participate in a Collegewide Food and Fund Drive led by the Center for Distance Learning.

Please bring a non-perishable food item (see the list below) or monetary donation to the conference check in.

All food and funds collected at the conference will be donated to the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York.

Our goal is to collect 500 items, and $100 dollars.

Food items currently being requested:

  • Canned protein (tuna, chicken)cans
  • Canned entrees (stew, ravioli)
  • Canned fruit in juice
  • Canned spaghetti sauce (please no glass jars)
  • Canned soup
  • Cereal
  • Canned 100% juice
  • Peanut butter and jelly

If anyone cannot make it to the conference, they can donate to a local organization and then email TakePart@esc.edu to let us know how many items/dollar amount they donated so it can be included it in the tally.

This is a great opportunity to give back to the community!

For more information, contact Casey L. Kohler at Casey.Kohler@esc.edu.
