BCC to Hold 11th Annual Trick-or-Treat for Canned Goods
Oct 13, 2011
Berkshire Community College (BCC) will hold its Eleventh Annual Trick-or-Treat for Canned Goods on Sunday, October 30th and Monday, October 31st.

BCC students will canvas selected neighborhoods on Sunday from 12 noon to 7:00 PM & Monday, 5:00 to 7:00 PM to collect canned goods. The neighborhoods to be visited will receive a flyer and bag from now until October 28th notifying them of the event. Anyone who does not receive a flyer, but who wishes to make a donation, can bring non-perishables to BCC's Susan B. Anthony Center or a local food pantry of their choice.

All donations collected by the students will benefit the First Methodist Church, Christian Center and Berkshire Dream Project, which are in need of food that can easily be made into well-balanced meals. Examples include rice, beans, pasta, spaghetti sauce, peanut butter and jelly, pork and beans, juice boxes, Goldfish, pretzels, granola bars, dry cereal, and oatmeal.

The event is sponsored by the BCC Student Government Ambassadors. For more information, call the Office of Student Life at 499-4660 x1660.
