Helping Hands Food Drive

Posted: Updated:

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 donations.

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.
