Give Thanks – and Cans!
Marshall and Viterbi Student Groups Organize Unique Canned Food Drive
November 15, 2012 • by News at Marshall

Marshall Outreach and Volunteer Entrepreneurs (MOVE) has partnered with the Viterbi-Marshall National Organization for Business and Engineering (NOBE) to organize a Thanksgiving Canned Food Drive to benefit the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. The drive will end on Friday, Nov. 16, with a unique event: a Canstruction Competition.

The Canstruction Competition, to be held from 11a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Marshall breezeway and lawn, will bring students together to build a structure with cans donated through the drive. Collection bins for the canned food drive are located at HOH 200, BRI 104 and the Accounting Library.

“We hope to be able to bring the USC community together, raise awareness about hunger issues in Los Angeles and make giving back to the community fun,” said Benita Yu, co-president of MOVE.

MOVE and NOBE are hosting the Thanksgiving Canned Food Drive and Canstruction Competition in partnership with the Office of the Dean and the Undergraduate Student Services Office of the Marshall School of Business and the Undergraduate Admission Office of the Viterbi School of Engineering.
