AMA, Student Senate sponsoring annual ‘Turkey Trot’ food drive

Northwest Missouri State University’s chapter of the American Marketing Association and Student Senate are bringing students and Nodaway County communities together to support less fortunate people with their annual canned food drive.

The “Turkey Trot” event will begin at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 19, at Colden Pond. Participating organizations will go door-to-door, asking for canned foods to be donated to the Maryville Ministry Center. The Ministry Center is accepting all donations and has a need for crackers, pudding, Jell-O and laundry soap.

Each team will be assigned an area of the community, and the organization that collects the most pounds of food will receive $100. Second and third-place teams will each receive $50.

To participate, organizations should submit the name of their group, the number of individuals participating and a contact person to Rachel Kortkamp  

The deadline for teams to register is 4 p.m. Monday, Nov. 17.
