2010 Winter Break Food Basket Drive for Alachua County Schoolchildren

For the past several years, Santa Fe faculty and staff have very generously collected food for the annual Winter Break Food Basket Drive (instructions here). I hope we can continue with this tradition of helping our less fortunate Alachua County Public Schools’ families. Many of the students who are on the reduced or free lunch program while school is in session may not have enough to eat over the winter break. Kelley Kostamo and her team from the School Board of Alachua County are hoping to pick up our contributions by Dec. 10; however, they can collect it as late as Dec. 14. Please bring your completed baskets to the information desk located on the first floor of the Alan J. Robertson Adminisitration Building by Dec. 10. If you wish to contribute individual items, please drop them off in the same location.

Over the past few years, the college has overwhelmingly supported this important program, with departments and academic units working together to complete a basket or baskets. I hope this history of support will continue this year. Please let me know if you have any questions. And thanks in advance!
