(OLNEY) The Olney Central College Student Senate has opened a new food pantry to assist fellow classmates at OCC. Student Senate members came up with the idea while attending the annual American Student Government Association Conference in Orlando, Florida. In recent weeks, the Student Senate has been busy preparing Room 100A to house the food pantry. The former office is located near the main entrance to Wattleworth Hall, making it a convenient stop for students. The Student Senate wants to thank everyone for the recent donations of several canned goods and they encourage future donations of non-perishable food items. The goal is to help benefit students who may be struggling to make ends meet by helping them & their families. To donate food items, contact the Student Senate at Olney Central College by calling 618-395-7777.
