San Joaquin Delta College has begun a food pantry to serve students in need, run by the Associated Student Body Government.
It will open officially in January 2013, but to get ready, ASBG is holding a food and turkey drive for Thanksgiving. The goal is to distribute 75 turkeys to students.
Food donations can be dropped off at the ASBG office located in Shima 101F. Monetary donations can be sent to the Office of Student Activities, 5151 Pacific Ave., Stockton, CA 95207. Checks can be made payable to San Joaquin Delta College ASBG Food Pantry. The food drive will conclude on Dec. 6.
Pledges for the turkey drive are currently being taken through an online pledge form available on the ASBG website at www.deltacollege.edu/org/asbg/asbgfoodpantry. Donors can also visit the ASBG office in Shima 101F or the Student Activities office in Shima 101C to sign-up to pledge a turkey. Pledges will be accepted through Oct. 31.
Questions can be directed to Elizabeth Landa, vice president of student affairs, at 209-954-5484 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
