The Emergency Food Pantry on Bruce Street in Newark recently received a fresh injection of non-perishable food items, thanks to the efforts of the College’s 26-member Physical Therapist Assistant Club.
Club members collected more than 100 canned and packaged goods in 18 bags and dropped them off this month at the food pantry, which is run by the New Community Corporation. “Our Health and Social Services staff, which oversees the Emergency Food Pantry, was blown away by your delivery,” said Eunice Lee, Manager of Communications for New Community Corporation.
Following the successful food drive and delivery, the students began preparing for final exams as they work toward their Associate in Applied Science degrees. The club is led by President Alison Alcordo.
