Patty Nolan of the local food bank (standing just to the right of the food boxes) and many students, faculty and staff members of GCC Gila Pueblo Campus and CVIT.

The Gila Pueblo Campus of Gila Community College just wrapped up its annual Holiday Food Drive. Their goal was to collect 1,000 items in five weeks; the students, faculty and staff more than met this goal by donating 2,890 items to the local food bank!

There was a little departmental competition that was won by the Biology Department who was rewarded with a luncheon. Food for the luncheon was donated by Fry’s, Vonnie’s Pizza, Little Ceasar’s, Cobre Valley Institute of Technology (CVIT), and Pinal Mountain Foundation for Higher Education. APS donated the collection boxes.
