Ten Tons of Love

OCC’s students showed their generosity through their participation in the “Ten Tons of Love” program. Students moving out of residence halls donated unopened food, unwanted clothing and other reusable items in good condition.

Non-perishable foods go to OCC’s food pantry for distribution to students.

Unopened food stayed on campus for distribution at OCC’s food pantry, which is located in room 112 of the Gordon Student Center. The rest of the items were trucked to the First English Lutheran Church at 501 James Street in Syracuse. Volunteers at the church worked to sort the items and distribute them to community members in need.

Ten Tons of Love is a collaborative effort between OCC, SUNY ESF, Syracuse University and the First English Lutheran Church.
