Countdown to Thanksgiving Food Drive

Countdown to Thanksgiving Food Drive

The Learning Resources Department put a Thanksgiving twist on the reverse advent calendar & is hosting a food drive! We'd love for you to join in the fun!  

Our Countdown to Thanksgiving Food Drive list provides inspiration to give thanks each day from November 1 until we break for Thanksgiving on November 24 by adding an item of food each day to a collection box. Each campus Library has a collection box or boxes set up and will give donated items to a local food pantry.

Collection Box Locations

Palatka Campus Library - items will go to Heart of Putnam

St. Augustine Campus Library, Admin office, H building, and J building -  items will go to the St. Francis House & Port in the Storm. They have some unique needs due to their grab & go lunch program. They need items that are pre-packaged into single servings like:

  • cups - fruit salad, pudding, apple sauce 

  • bars - granola, protein, breakfast bars, pudding cups

  • packs - crackers, cookies, nuts 

  • canned meat with a pull top

  • jerky sticks 

Orange Park Campus Library - items will go to The Clothes Closet & Food Pantry 

You don’t need to drop something off every day, of course, nor do you have to stick exactly to the list – that’s just a bit of fun smiley viking face
