UD Blue Hens Can – southern Delaware drop off locations

The UD Freshmen Class here in Georgetown and Sussex County Master Gardeners are working together to promote the Blue Hen’s CAN campus-wide food drive to benefit the Food Bank of Delaware.   I am inviting staff to participate.   If you participate in the food drive, drop off your items with Tammy and register for the three prizes that will be given away as part of the event.   We will need items by 12 noon on Friday, Nov. 16 to get your names up to Newark and entered in the drawing.  The students have decided to collect food items until Tuesday, Nov. 20., if you do not make the Nov. 16 deadline. (collection bin located in the master gardener office).
 
Individuals who donate will be entered to win:
UDairy Creamery ice cream gift basket;
Authorized Campus St
$100 iTunes gift card from UD’s Apple store; or
Wool blanket, made from wool of UD sheep, a $100 value
