The History of the Food Drive
Since 1999 USI’s Staff Council has sponsored a food drive to support Archie’s Closet and to raise awareness of the service it provides to the USI community. Activities have ranged from lining the boulevard with shopping carts for collections to starting voluntary departmental competitions across campus. The number of donations ranged from 500-1000 items each year. In 2016, Staff Council started to offer “Double Points” for items that were most needed by Archie’s Closet for team members participating in the competition. Donations skyrocketed to nearly 7,000 items, setting a new record!
The New and Improved Campus Wide Food Drive Competition!
New this year! As part of the USI strategic plan of Access and Opportunity by Design Staff Council has redesigned the Food Drive Competition to include the ENTIRE USI CAMPUS!
Every building and location on campus is now part of an Eagle Nest that will compete against each other during the food drive to gain the major award of exclusive bragging rights, the traveling trophy, and certificates to proudly display in the office areas.
