Food Drive

On behalf of the 2012-13 WIRSA student leader, Jordan Olson:

"This year at WIRSA we will be conducting a food drive for a local food pantry.  As we are all very fortunate to be in such a great field and a career we believe that it is important to give back to the communities that surround our campuses.  We will be collecting non-perishable food items at the registration table and throughout the conference which will be donated after the conference to help support a great a community and the people in it.  We ask, with your kindness to please donate one or two items when you check in at this year’s WIRSA conference.  

Items needed and used regularly at the River Falls Community Food Pantry include: 

  • canned vegetables and fruits
  • meals in a box (tuna and hamburger helper type items)
  • Instant mashed potatoes
  • pancake mix
  • anything else that could help a family in need this upcoming fall.  

Thank you for your donations in advance!"

Food donations will be going to:

The River Falls Community Food Pantry
