JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A GR8 Job shout out to students from the College of Business Phi Beta Lambda chapter at Arkansas State University.

They collected and delivered more than two tons of food to a local pantry for the holidays.

More than 4,700 pounds of food and $300 in cash were presented to the Helping Neighbors Food Pantry following the organization’s annual campus-wide canned food drive.

The group began collecting canned food in early November as part of a contest between the College of Business, the College of Media and Communication, and University College. The COB organization collected 1,600 cans to win.

GR8 Job!
