Thank you to our generous staff, faculty, and students who raised $2,173 during last week’s Holiday Meal Drive! Also, a special thank you to our Fire Service students who performed thousands of push-ups, and the employee volunteers who collected donations outside, in classrooms and departments, and around the campuses.

Because of your generosity, a hefty donation from the Associated Student Government, and our amazing partnership with the James Center Fred Meyer, about 143 students will be able to feed their families a holiday meal this season.

For the last few years, the James Center Fred Meyer has been vital in making this event a success for the college. In addition to providing a discount to the college, they have also donated pies for each meal given. Thank you, James Center Fred Meyer!

If you know of a student who will receive a meal from the Holiday Meal Drive and would like to share their story, please email

Happy Holidays!
