PTK Fall 2016 Community Service Project


Monday, November 28, 2016


Clinton Community College’s chapter of PTK is participating in our Fall Community Service Project, a Phi Theta Kappa civic engagement program that encourages community college students to donate non-perishable food items and books to local relief agencies and literacy organizations. This semester, our chapter will assist in the battle against hunger and illiteracy by supporting two valuable resources within our own community.

From Monday, November 28 until Friday, December 9, we will be collecting non-perishable food items and new or gently used children’s books. The books should be appropriate for ages newborn – 14. We will be donating the food items to the Interfaith Food Shelf and the books to the Journey into Reading program, which provides story readings and free books to area children.

Donations of food items and/or books may be placed in any of the five decorated collection boxes, positioned at the following locations:

  • First floor lobby, Moore Building
  • Second floor lobby, Moore Building
  • Fifth floor Moore Building, faculty lounge
  • First floor Stafford Building, box office counter
  • First floor Forrence Health, Physical Education & Recreation (HPER) Building, reception area
