DALLAS TWP.: Misericordia University students active in the Scholars in Service to Pennsylvania Program have scheduled a canned goods drive on campus to benefit one of the four food banks in the region in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the MLK Day of Service on Monday. Misericordia University students, faculty and staff and the public are invited to donate canned goods to the Campus Ministry-led effort, which will benefit the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Food Bank, the Back Mountain Food Pantry, the St. Vincent de Paul Kitchen or the Noxen Food Pantry. The beneficiary of the canned goods drive will be decided by the popular vote of university students. The university will deliver the collected items to the winning food bank.
Donations are being accepted at the office of Campus Ministry in the Banks Student Life Center on the upper campus until Monday.
Misericordia students and staff who are active in Campus Ministry will can-struct a large peace sign in the lobby of the Banks Student Life Center from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday to represent how the campus and regional communities came together to provide a solution to one of the nation's most pressing problems, hunger.
