CoB Thanks Students for Successful Food Drive


2013 Brent Berry Food DriveThanks to the efforts of College of Business students, faculty, and staff, Harrisonburg’s Salvation Army is able to help numerous families this holiday season. The final food donation total was 7,218 items—far surpassing this year’s donation goal of 5,000 items.

On Thursday, Nov. 21, 2013, Brent Berry, alongside countless volunteers from the College of Business and the Harrisonburg Police Department, pitched in to help load donations onto trucks.

CoB Accounting professor and coordinator of JMU’s participation in the food drive Dr. Chuck Baril says, “Congratulations and thanks to everyone for helping make our 5th Annual CoB Diversity Council Food Drive the most successful ever! Please let your students know how much their generosity is appreciated.”
