Southeast College in the midst of a food drive

The Southeast College is once again collecting donations for local food banks at its campuses in Estevan, Moosomin and Weyburn.

The food drive started on Dec. 1 and will continue until Dec. 19, and is part of an intercampus competition that was spearheaded by the Weyburn campus staff and students.

“As part of our commitment to enhancing our student experience and to encourage our students and staff to help to give back to the communities that we serve, we are very excited to launch our inter-campus competition once again this year,” said Sheena Onrait, manager of marketing and communications for Southeast College.

“We had such fun with the food bank drive last year, our staff and our students really got involved and everyone was so excited to participate.”

Collection bins will be placed at the three campuses. Staff, students and the public are encouraged to drop off donations at these locations until Dec. 19, when all donations will be weighed and a winning campus will be announced.

“We are members of the communities that we serve and we recognize that food bank usage traditionally increases in the Christmas season,” said Dion McGrath, president and CEO of Southeast College. “We encourage other businesses and groups to join in with us to help meet the needs of individuals and families in southeast Saskatchewan.”

Southeast College is proud to be the trainer of choice in southeast Saskatchewan, serving approximately 8,000 learners and producing over 5,000 graduates annually.
