Health sciences students collect food for Community Table

Western Carolina University’s organizations for students majoring in athletic training, emergency medical care and health information administration together collected 582 food items for Community Table in Sylva during the last month of the fall semester.

The fifth annual School of Health Sciences food drive was organized by Jeremiah Nichols and Cortni Bazzle, junior athletic training students.

“We recognize that the economic downturn over the past year has resulted in an even greater need to support organizations like Sylva’s Community Table,” said Nichols. “Collecting food items for the holidays is one small way we can give back to the local community.”
