ACC Food Drive Under Way

The Alvin ISD and Alvin Community College Food and Toy Drive is now under way and collecting donations on several campuses.

“The partnership between Alvin Community College and Alvin ISD allows thousands of students and community members to get involved by donating food and toys, volunteering to sort and sack food and participate in Breakfast with Santa,” said organizer and ACC Digital Marketing specialist Sammi Sanders.

The drive provides food for families in need and donations are distributed at the annual Breakfast with Santa on December 2. More than 1,400 people ate at last year’s breakfast.

The college is also working with the annual Toys for Tots toy drive by hosting several drop off locations on campus.

The ACC food drive works in partnership with Alvin ISD. Alvin ISD campuses also will be collecting food donations throughout November. Several tons of food were distributed to families in 2016, going to more than 300 families.

“Last year 467 families were nominated to receive food,” Sanders said.

Volunteers will help sort and sack the food at the ACC gym from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Nov. 30. Breakfast with Santa and the food distribution will be from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Dec. 2 at the ACC Student Center, 3110 Mustang Road. Food and toys will also will be distributed at the Manvel High School, 19601 Highway 6.

Volunteers are needed for the event to either sort food or distribute food to the families.

“When the food is delivered to ACC it is piled high on pallets. We have one day to sort the food and re-sack it to ensure that each family receives a little of everything,” Sanders said. “We always need volunteers to help with this process.”

For more information or to make a donation, contact Sanders at 281-756-3542.
