Georgia College will hold a food-and-book drive through Friday, Feb. 8 to benefit the Twin Lakes Library System, Baldwin State Prison and Cafe Central. Non-perishable goods and gently used books can be dropped off at Walter B. Williams Park and around Georgia College’s campus, including the Cultural Center at the Smith House, Sandella’s on West Campus, the GC Library & Instructional Technology Center and The Max dining hall on main campus.
Georgia College and community organizations can compete for a $200 gift certificate from Sodexo by dropping off the most goods at The Max between 1 and 3 p.m. Friday, Feb. 8.
“The turnout this year was well beyond the committee’s expectations. The cookout had a good plus 200 people. What I was really encouraged by was there were so many people from Georgia College at the tribute service. The president even marched right next to me,” Little said. “[Monday’s] event was the first step in what I hope is a new era. The [Georgia College] president is willing to bridge the gap and he’s proving that he is passionate about the history of what the speakers and panelists talked about. We have to make sure the rest of us are on board, and that the community and Georgia College plays their part. We’re all about movement in our community.”
