Good Deeds: UIS canned food drive

"I want to thank the people of Springfield for their generosity this Halloween. I was captain of a team of students from the University of Illinois Springfield that spread throughout the city on Halloween collecting canned goods for the Central Illinois Foodbank. There were 14 teams total, and together UIS collected more than 4,000 pounds of food!"

UIS student Jaleesa Earthely was featured in the Good Deeds section of the State Journal-Register in a November 14, 2009 edition.
