JMU Gives Back to the Harrisonburg Community

Brent Berry Food DriveIn support of Harrisonburg’s Salvation Army food bank and the Brent Berry Food Drive, the 5th Annual JMU Diversity Council Food Drive is well underway. Students from the College of Business are encouraged to aid the Harrisonburg community by donating food items.

Thanks to the efforts of CoB Accounting professor and coordinator of JMU’s participation in the Brent Berry Food Drive Dr. Chuck Baril, the food drive is set to be even more successful than last year.  Baril explains, “Our CoB is being counted on.  The shelves of the Salvation Army food bank are nearly bare, with food items expected to be exhausted within a week.” This year, the donation goal is 5,000 food items, 1,000 more than last year’s goal.  Students from the College of Business aim to meet and hopefully exceed this goal. 

JMU recognizes that donating food to local food banks is important, especially during this time of year. Harrisonburg’s Salvation Army hopes to ensure that the holiday season is a joyous time of year for everyone living in Harrisonburg and the surrounding areas.

Acceptable donations include canned goods, boxed foods, and all nonperishable food items. Professors from the College of Business will be accepting donations up until 2:00 pm on Thursday, Nov. 21, 2013.
