With the holiday season approaching, students from the Center for Career and Community Education recently spearheaded a food drive to benefit those in need.
The Dental Assistant, Medical Assistant and Practical Nursing classes collected hundreds of nonperishable items from Nov. 1-15.
They gathered canned goods, boxed food, peanut butter, pasta sauce and more.
All the items were put into boxes for pre-Thanksgiving delivery to help restock food pantries.
According to Dental Assistant teacher Adele Haskins, the food drive was a huge success thanks to the generous contributions of students and community members.
She expects the donations to go a long way toward helping those in need during the holidays.
CCCE is the partnership between CiTi Adult Education programs and Cayuga Community College.
