AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - The Food Pantry at Amarillo College is spearheading an effort to help feed AC students and their families this Thanksgiving.
The Food Pantry asked the entire AC workforce to provide food donations to fill 100 sacks; however, the AC Family's extraordinary response was such that the Food Pantry now will provide 200 sacks of food.
The sacks will contain everything needed to make a Thanksgiving meal – canned corn, yams, cranberries and pie filing, gravy mix and boxes of stuffing, pie crusts, and even supermarket gift cards for purchasing perishable items, for instance a turkey or ham.
Who: AC officials and the first 200 currently enrolled AC students, on a first-come basis.
What: Thanksgiving Sacks giveaway sponsored by the AC Food Pantry.
When: 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. (or as long as sacks last) Monday, Nov. 21
Where: College Union Building, first floor – Washington Street Campus (100 sacks); Jones Hall, second floor – West Campus (50 sacks); and Student Service Center – East Campus (50 sacks).
