LLCC-Beardstown held food and clothing drives the last three weeks in November during which students and faculty collected more than 200 items, including non-perishable food, hats, gloves, socks, mittens and scarves. These items were donated to the LLCC-Beardstown Food Pantry, Cass County Food Pantry, New 2 You Consignment Store and Beardstown Middle School.
Classes competed to collect the most items for the drive and win a pizza party. Two sections of Composition I (EGL 101) taught by Erin Schafer, adjunct instructor, were honored — one as the class with the most food drive donations and the other as the class that collected the most clothing drive items.
Many thanks to staff and students for making the food drive and Administrative Assistant Peer 2 Peer Connections group “Stuff the Stocking” events a great success in Beardstown!
