Aztecs! We are now 14 days into our Aztecs Rock Hunger Food Drive and have 10 days left! It’s time to show our support for the campaign to raise food for those in need! This food drive is an annual event in partnership with the University of California San Diego, CSU San Marcos, and Point Loma Nazarene University. These schools compete against each other to see who can collect the MOST food for the Jacobs and Cushman San Diego Food Bank. Since the Aztecs are so AMAZING, we have won for the past three years in a row! We’ve also been successful in doubling the amount of food we raise each year. Last year we raised 55,000 pounds of food so this year our target goal is to raise 100,000 pounds of food for the Food Bank. The only way we are going to reach this goal is with the support of each and every Aztec!
DONATE! DONATE! DONATE!
Donations will be accepted until October 28th. You can donate in three different ways. You can choose to drop off non-perishable food items in the red bins that are located in various places all over campus and will also be located at our home football games in October. You can also make monetary donations at any of the Aztec Market locations. So if you need to spend the last couple of dollars of your meal plan for the day or if you want to use the change from you $1.39 coffee you can let the teller know and that money will go towards the Food Drive! Lastly, you can donate online through the SDSU Virtual Panty. Each dollar is the equivalent of 3.84 pounds of food!
I am a member of the Afrikan Student Union and they have put a huge focus on the food drive. To entice the members to participate and donate they make a competition out of it! The membership was split into 7 different groups and the group that donates the most will win the competition! Even though the competition is solely for bragging rights, it has caught the attention of the members and encouraged them to get out there and make as many donations as they can!
So get motivated to donate as well! And tell a friend! AZTECS ROCK HUNGER!
