RBC Food Drive
Oct 20 – Nov 17 all-day

The Richard Bland College Student Assembly will be hosting a food drive here on campus on behalf of the Colonial Heights Food Pantry. We will be accepting donations now until Monday November 17, 2014. We had such a successful drive last year collecting non-perishable items and almost $300.00 cash from students who donated. We are looking to increase our numbers this year. We will have boxes set up around campus in the following buildings:

Center for Student Affairs (Downstairs in the lobby)
Statesman Hall (Gym) Lobby
Maze Hall (under the events board on the registrar side)
Freedom Hall (Lobby)
Patriot Hall (Lobby)
McNeer (Lobby near stairwell)
