The Lake Land College Broadcasting Club collected several boxes of non-perishable food items to donate to the Laker Food Pantry. Broadcasting Club President Stephanie Sample says that nobody should have to worry about where their next meal is coming from and being a Laker means taking part in caring for your community.
Sample says that students in need of food and the mission of hte Laker Food Pantry were topics she was very familiar with as she grew up in a low-income house. She says there were times that she felt helpless and that she hopes none of her peers ever have to feel that way as they receive an education.
Greg Powers, who is the communication studies/broadcasting instructor and station manager of WLKL 89.9 FM says that this is a very important food drive. He says that it is important for the club to give back to the community and that broadcasters should always be involved in their community and have the potential to do so much for the areas they serve.
The food drive is a month-long event put on every year by the club since 2008. To learn more about the club and other organizations and clubs at Lake Land College, visit lakelandcollege.edu/student-life.
