Food Drive for Vol State Students

Many of our students need outside assistance to get by. Each year they are helped by the Christmas for the Kids program with presents and a party. Lately, we have also been doing a food drive for those families.

The Employee Relations Food Drive benefits the families from the Christmas for the Kids program run by the Vol State Student Government Association each year. Once all food drive donations are collected, they are sorted and distributed evenly among the families. We are able to provide food for 16-20 families through the Christmas for Kids program each year.
