JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Some Arkansas State University students are working to feed the hungry ahead of the holidays.
For two weeks, members of the professional organization Phi Beta Lambda with Arkansas State University have been collecting food for the Helping Neighbors Food Pantry in Jonesboro. President of Phi Beta Lambda Makyla McDougal said you never know what you can accomplish until you try.
"Don't underestimate yourself," McDougal said. "Just get involved."
"Even if you think you're only going to get a little bit. You might not and you might make it as big as we did," said McDougal.
They managed to collect 5,500 cans of food that they delivered Monday afternoon.
