OTC Hosts Food Drive Nov. 9-20

OTC hosts Food Drive Nov. 9-20

In honor of National Hunger Awareness Week, Ozarks Technical Community College will host its second annual food drive Nov. 9-20. This effort has been planned and supported by Enactus and other student organizations. Since many of our students receive assistance from food banks, they want to give back to the organizations who help our students. Last year, thanks to your help, OTC donated over 5,055 pounds of food to local food pantries.

We are asking for food donations of non-perishable food. Please do not donate glass containers or out-of-date products. Food collected at the different OTC sites will benefit food pantries in the immediate area:

Collection bins will be at each location. In Springfield, the collection bins will be in Graff Hall, NKM, ITTC and the Jared Family Atrium (IC building).

New this year: If you would like to make a cash donation, you may do that in the OTC Foundation Office (Springfield Campus – IC 206) or online at All monies donated will be designated for the Student Emergency Fund.

Additionally, there is a contest between locations to see which one can collect the most food (the pounds of food collected will be divided by the number of students at the location). Last year’s winner was Waynesville, and they received a traveling trophy to display. They will work hard to keep the trophy and bragging rights. Springfield, Richwood Valley, Lebanon, Table Rock and Online will have to work hard to win it from them.

If you have questions, please contact Marcia Wheeler at or the team leader at your locatioDrop n.
