Mid-State apprenticeship food drive triples donations to local food pantries
For the City Times
WISCONSIN RAPIDS – Mid-State Technical College’s third annual Apprenticeship Food Drive has collected and distributed 7,134 pounds of food and household items to local pantries in Mid-State’s district communities, a significant jump over last year’s 2,000-pound haul.
This year’s total represented the combined donations from Mid-State’s Construction Electrician (ABC and IBEW-NECA), Ironworker, Maintenance Technician, Millwright and Plumber apprentices as part of the college’s celebration of National Apprenticeship Week, Nov. 11-15.
Donations were also delivered to Operation Bootstrap in Stevens Point, the Adams Food Pantry in Adams, and St. Vincent de Paul in Marshfield.
