Acden representatives recently provided a significant gift in the form of a major food donation for Keyano College students.
For weeks, Acden employees had collected donations through its annual food drive, and from that delivered a hefty load for the Student Food Bank at Keyano on January 16.
“We are extremely pleased Acden chose college students as the recipients for its food bank drive this year,” said Students' Association of Keyano College (SAKC) Executive Director Sherry MacEachern.
The donation was warmly received by SAKC. The Association is regularly in need of non-perishable food items, particularly during the winter months, and distributes food in several areas of the College.
Keyano College students are provided food assistance in two main ways:
- The student association effort is intended for immediate, short term needs. Students can take what they need anonymously.
- For longer-term food security issues, the process is more formalized and the college’s Student Wellness Committee works in partnership with the Wood Buffalo Food Bank
