Thanksgiving Food Drive

As we all know Thanksgiving is right around the corner and one of the many things we all get excited about is the large portion of food we plan on eating. Sadly, not everyone is fortunate enough to have the joys of having a meal every day, let alone on Thanksgiving. This is why Alpha Phi Sigma, the National Criminal Justice Honors Society, is having a canned food drive to donate food to the "So Some Might Eat"  Homeless Shelter and Soup kitchen located in Washington, D.C. There will be a box in the Criminology Advising Office  (2201 Lefrak) on the second floor of LeFrak for all participants to drop off the canned items that they would like to donate. Please help Alpha Phi Sigma on this mission to try and feed as many hungry families as we can this Thanksgiving. 

Thank you for your time and participation, and have a happy holiday.
