HKN is proud to announce that we will be holding a non-perishable food drive! All items will be donated to Food Finders, a non-profit organization in Lakewood dedicated to “eliminating hunger and food waste while improving nutrition in the food insecure communities we serve.” You can check them out at Attached is a flyer for the food drive and a list of items that Food Finders is in need of. 

Remember, being an HKN member is not just about maintaining good grades, but also about being a contributing member to your community. Please take time out of your schedule to collect and donate food for this cause. 

The donation bin will be located in the IEEE-HKN office by the back door. You can drop off items any time the office is open. Please do not donate items in glass containers. Thank you in advance for your donation!
