SWOSU Education Service Frat Conducting Food Drive for Local Pantry


Southwestern Oklahoma State University’s education service fraternity—Rho Epsilon Alpha Delta (READ)—is conducting a finals food drive to support the Weatherford Middle School Food Pantry.

The pantry currently supports 15 students, providing for these chronically-hungry students and their families. Donations for the holiday break will include extra helpings to serve additional siblings, serving a total of 42 hungry students.

SWOSU students/faculty and members of the community are encouraged to bring 3-10 non-perishable, kid-friendly, easy-to-open food items. Preferred items are: peanut butter, soups, ravioli, spaghettios, canned items with pull tab openings, juices, cereal bars, pop-tarts, small variety pack cereals, fruit snacks, granola bars, canned chicken, canned tuna, etc.

These items need to be delivered to the Basement Student Lounge of the Education Building by Tuesday, December 17, at noon. Monetary donations will also be accepted at Education Building 110 with checks payable to SWOSU READ. Fresh items will be purchased with these monetary donations.
