Vogtís 2nd Annual Christmas Food Drive
The Vogt Leadership Society will be sponsoring itsí 2nd Annual Christmas Food Drive starting November 27th. Last year the society was able to collect over 2000 food items to donate to needy families in the Quad Cities. We again would like to thank all the students, faculty, and staff members that made our initial food drive a great success. We would also like to recognize the Delta Sigma Chiís who made the largest donation, therefore allowing us to reach our collection goal. Because we reached our goal, Dr. Kern, Dr. Marchiori, Dr. Percoco, and Vashtie Ryan were wonderful sports and spread some Christmas cheer in their holiday costumes!
The Vogt Leadership Society HAS believes it is very important that Palmer plays an active role in supporting the community. Donít let us forget how the community supports us. We urge everyone again to participate and bring any non-perishable food items that they can spare to help needy families during the holiday season. You can bring your donations starting November 26th to the Union stage. The Society will be setting a higher collection goal this year and will be collecting items up until December 15th.
