The University of Findlay was trying to collect
50,000 pounds of food Wednesday evening.
The university held its Helping Hands Food Drive trying to break last years record of almost 47,300 pounds of
food. Students, businesses, and the community were invited to drop off
Organizers say this event has become a friendly
competition between student organizations to donate cans in just 12
hours to help the needy. Since 2006 the university has donated more than
150,00 pounds of food to Chopin Hall, a non-profit helping the needy
in Hancock County.
