RCC faculty, staff, retirees and students donated over 1,300 Pounds of Food

When there’s a need, the faculty, staff, retirees and students of Rockingham Community College answer the call. Rockingham Community College participated in the annual County-Wide Food Drive that will benefit 8 local agencies.

Early this month Associate Vice President for Administrative Services Dr. Tony Gunn received information about the food drive and within a few days the Technology Support Staff at RCC organized a plan to create a replica of a giant caterpillar based on the main character in Eric Carle’s famous children’s book, The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

Students, faculty, staff and retirees from across campus donated over 1,300 pounds of food to benefit the following agencies: The American Red Cross Food Pantry, The Cooperative Christian Ministries, Hands of God, Rockingham County Veterans Coalition, The Salvation Army of Eden, The Salvation Army Food Pantry of Reidsville, The Reidsville Soup Kitchen, Men in Christ Ministries.

The college will accept donations from the community through April 9. Drop off your donations in the Administration Building located RCC’s campus.
