The first ever ESU Commuter Can Drive is being held over the month of November.

Initially started on Monday, Nov. 2, the drive will continue through Thursday, Dec. 3.

The can collection is aimed to help families in need during the holidays.

Students are asked to bring various non-perishable foods to stations around campus.

The Commuter Council, a relatively new group at ESU, sponsors the event.

Though the Council only got its start this semester, they have already established their presence on campus.

The Can Drive will be their first community service-focused project.

According to ESU’s website, goods which may be brought in include, but are not limited to: rice, pasta, 100% juice, honey nuts, vegetables and fruits that are canned in water (not syrup), seasonings and spices, olive oil, whole grain dry cereals, tuna/sardines, canned beans, canned legumes and canned soup.

Donations can be dropped off at the Commuter Lounge in the University Center, Kemp Library, the Campus Activities Board office and participating residence halls.

The grand total of the goods collected will not be available until after they count them up on Dec. 3.

For more information about the can drive, please contact commuters@esu.edu

Additionally, if you are interested in joining the Commuter Council, contact the above, or attend the council’s meeting on Dec. 1 at 3 p.m.
