With Halloween fast approaching and many having gotten their costumes, a fun activity that would make great use of students love for Halloween would be volunteering for the BUSU Halloween Food Drive. BUSU will be holding its annual Halloween Food Drive on October 31st. Partnering with ACC and the Samaritan House, a citywide food drive will be orchestrated and everything collected will go towards each institution’s respective food banks. Volunteers will be able to dress up and go trick or treating for non-perishable food items.
Unfortunately, only student groups are welcomed to sign up for the trick or treating portion of the food drive. Whenever a student group signs up, they can expect to win $0.25 for every pound of food they collect. This money can go towards any group activities or events.
If you would like to volunteer but are not part of a group you are more than welcome to help BUSU with the following.
1) Weighing food as it comes in during the event
2) Separating expired food items during and after the event
3) Organizing non-expired food items into specific categories
To sign up both student groups and volunteers can visit the BUSU office and sign up on the Sign-Up sheet. If you are unable to go to the BUSU office, you can phone 204-727-9660 and a BUSU representative will help you sign up over the phone. In regards to the event, all volunteers are expected to meet at Samaritan House on October 31st at 5:00 pm. The event will run from 5:00-9:00pm.
