Music Students and Faculty Give Back with annual Food Drive and Toy Drive

Texas Wesleyan Music students and faculty have begun their annual food and toy drives. This is the seventh year for each of the drives.

The food collected will be donated to the Tarrant Area Food Bank and the toys are donated to the Lena Pope Home Foster Care Program.

"No one should go hungry, and every child deserves to have a smile on their face at Christmastime," said Department Chair Jerry Bierschenk. "This outreach effort gives us all an opportunity take our minds off of ourselves for a bit and reach out to the community.

"It is a good reminder that there are those who are less fortunate."

The drive is not limited to Music Department personnel and students. Anyone wishing to donate should bring their items to the second floor of the music building (Ann Waggoner) any time between now and Dec. 12.
