On Wednesday morning, the students presented a check for
$1,175.00 and hundreds of non-perishable food items to the
Lincoln-Logan County Food Pantry.
During homecoming week, students exchanged five canned food items or
$5 cash for a ticket to the homecoming dance. In addition, coin wars
determined who won the homecoming King and Queen Title.
Part of the Student Government and Student Activities Board’s
mission is to continue to expand their involvement in the Lincoln
Community. Fundraising for the food pantry is just one of the ways
they are giving back this year.

Zach Landers, Coordinator of Student Services for Lincoln College said the
decision from the Student Activities Board to give back to the local community
and in particular, the food pantry was easy.
“The holidays are the busiest time of year for food pantries, and traditionally
the homecoming dance has become a fundraiser for the Student Activities Board to
collect food items,” Landers said. “This year we upped the ante by introducing
coin wars and allowing students to pay a $5 donation in lieu of donating five
canned food items.”
