From April 27 through May 11, campus community members participated in the annual Ten Tons of Love collection drive sponsored by the Office of Off-Campus and Commuter Services. This year’s collection resulted in 14 tons of donated goods. The total for clothing, household items and electronics came to 12 tons, all of which benefited the Rescue Mission and its programming. The total food donations came to two tons. Due to an outpouring of food donations, Off-Campus and Commuter Services was able to stock the Hendricks Chapel Food Pantry and provide additional donations to the Food Bank of Central New York and the Interreligious Food Consortium. “This year’s Tens Ton of Love effort was remarkable,” says Elin Riggs, director of the Office of Off-Campus and Commuter Services. “Through our added partnerships and the great generosity of our campus community members, we were able to contribute even more to benefit the community.” For more information, contact the Office of Off-Campus and Commuter Services at 315.443.5489.
