Campus Holiday Food Drive

To: UCSC Community

From: Chancellor Blumenthal

As we begin the busy holiday season, I write to remind you that the annual Second Harvest Food Bank UCSC Holiday Food Drive is in need of donations.

You can leave bags of nonperishable food items at your Mail Stop or send your check anytime to Holiday Food Drive, UCSC. Make checks payable to Second Harvest Food Bank and note UCSC Food Drive in the memo section. A campus Mail Services truck will be stationed at the entrance to campus on Friday, November 30, to allow drop-off of collection bags and checks.

For every dollar donated, Second Harvest is able to distribute more than $9 worth of food. A $10.00 cash donation provides a family an average of 50 meals.

Food collected during the Holiday Food Drive is used throughout the winter months to provide food and basic necessities to a network of approximately 160 human service agencies and programs that serve more than 45,000 people every month.

Please join us in our effort to increase donations to Second Harvest Food Bank by supporting the annual UCSC Holiday Food Drive.
