UTSA Police Department sponsors holiday food drive

By Stephanie Padula
Lieutenant, UTSA Police Department

(Dec. 3, 2008)--The UTSA Police Department will host a holiday food drive through Dec. 12. Non-perishable food items for the San Antonio Food Bank will be collected at 22 locations on the UTSA Tri-campuses.

The food drive is an excellent way for UTSA community members to show concern for the less fortunate during the holidays and to provide meals that will mean so much. Individual donations can be dropped off or items can be collected in each office and brought to the selected locations at each campus.

Donated items cannot be in glass containers. The San Antonio Food Bank lists these items as the most needed:

  • peanut butter
  • cereal
  • chili
  • canned stews and soups
  • canned tuna and luncheon meats
  • beans (bags or cans)
  • full meals in a can or box
  • rice
  • pop-top foods
  • macaroni and cheese dinners
