Halloween brought out trick or treaters of an older variety in Muenster. St. Peter’s College Student Government’s Riley Sylvestre took to the streets in his finest octogenarian frock to gather goods for the Humboldt District Food Bank. It’s part of an ongoing campaign by the student organization to fill the shelves at the Food Bank for the Christmas season. People can keep the giving going, says Sylvestre.
“In Muenster, there’s going to be a drop box at the Muenster Co-op and at St. Peter’s College.”
Drop boxes have been set up at the Humboldt Co-op Food Store, the Annaheim Post Office and at the main entrance to the Elgar Petersen Arena. The Drive goes from November 14 - December 7. On the final day of the drive, St. Peter’s College students will be at the Uniplex for the Broncos game with a special collection area set up. All non-perishable food items will be accepted.
Riley says the people of Muenster were generous with their handouts on Halloween night. Now they are hoping to add to the existing haul with the additional drop offs in surrounding communities.
St. Peter’s College Student Government works toward enhancing the student experience on campus, but they are also out in the community supporting projects like the Food Drive. They are also planning to continue the legacy of their annual student curling bonspiel over the winter with a raffle and a potluck. The bonspiel has been popular since its return and the hope is to see it grow in the new year.
Check out the donation opportunities for the St. Peter’s College Student Government Food Drive in your community and head on out to the Bronco game on December 7 with some non-perishable food items to top up the donation boxes.
