Food Collection For Homeless College Students
Recent news stories raised awareness of the large number of struggling college students in Polk County, especially those that are low income & even homeless. YAD quickly contacted Polk State College to get more information. We were happy to learn that both PSC's Lakeland & Winter Haven campuses had food pantries to help out these students. So now we collect non-perishable food items as well as hygienic items so that we can donate them. We do one donation drop off to the Winter Haven campus during the spring break season, & another to Lakeland before the Thanksgiving break.
