Trick-or-Eat competition to collect canned goods

The Volunteer and Civic Engagement Center at the University of Illinois Springfield will sponsor a Trick-or-Eat competition to collect canned goods Saturday.

The event is part of the UIS Holiday Stars Project. The overall goal is to collect 4,500 of pounds of food for the Central Illinois Foodbank by Dec. 3.

Teams of UIS students have been assigned to neighborhoods where they will collect non-perishable food items. The teams have already canvassed the neighborhoods, distributing collection bags, along with door hangers that explain the project.
