VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - Valdosta State University is helping fight hunger in south Georgia.
Wednesday, the university began putting out food collection boxes around campus as part of their participation in Southeastern Federal Credit Union's month-long "Fill A Truck For Hunger" campaign.
The student government association is asking all students to donate four non-perishable items through September 30th, with the goal of collecting 40,000 lbs. of food.
All food collected will be given to Second Harvest Food Bank.
"It's a really good cause. We, at Valdosta State University, don't only want to be a university we want to be a community," said David Burdette, VSU Student Government Affairs Student Body President. "In order to be a community, we have to get involved in the community."
Collection bins are located in the Student Union, the University Center, the Student Recreation Center, the Health Sciences and Business Administration Building, and each of the residence halls.
