Want to make a difference this holiday season? There are currently three food drives in progress at Sheandoah University, so be sure to get involved!

The Cans Across Campus Food Drive is sponsored by the Student-Athlete Advisory Council (SAAC), the Health & Life Sciences Club and the Office of Spiritual Life. Donation boxes are located in Aikens Athletic Center, Goodson Chapel/Recital Hall and Armstrong, Gregory, Henkel and Howe halls. Canned goods and other non-perishable items are accepted now through Wednesday, Nov. 14.

All food will be given to the athletic department’s flagship radio station, The River 95.3 FM, toward their “Camping for Hunger” food drive. All food collected through that initiative will be donated to the Salvation Army of the Northern Shenandoah Valley. Questions? Contact or email students Dorothy Earner ( or Joey Bikkers (
