The Western's Men's and Women's Golf Teams helped tee-off the community-wide Business Cares Food Drive for 2012 on November 30 at London Hall. With the support of President Amit Chakma, the golfers showed their putting prowess through the course constructed of donated can goods. While the launch was light hearted the underlying need for campus community support of Western Cares Food Drive is more important than ever.
The London and Area Food Bank supports over 3,500 people with
emergency food on a monthly basis. Last year the Business Cares Food
Drive contributed over 256, 000 lb of food during the December campaign.
This year the food bank has had a 19% increase in demand for support,
meaning your support is critically important.
In addition to those who support the campaign with their donations a big word of thanks goes to the Building Captains around campus who promote the food drive in their areas. A tip of the hat also to Hospitality Services who arranged with their suppliers donations to help to kick off the campaign at Western on Nov. 30.
