The month of October marks the start of Can Emporia and the Washburn Student Government Association will be collecting cans and monetary donations until Nov 6. WSGA invites students to compete in the friendly competition. Each year, Washburn competes with Emporia State in order to collect the most food for their respective charities.
Students can donate by monetary means online at canemporia.harvestersvfd.org or bring cans to the WSGA office, located in the lower level of the Memorial Union.
WSGA also accepts Ramen Noodles (4 packages equals 1 can), jarred items 12oz or more (equivalent to 3 cans), boxes of cereal 12oz or more (equivalent to 3 cans) and Macaroni and Cheese (1 box equals 1 can).
Students only have 18 days left to donate!
