The Oconee GOP is sponsoring a food drive for the food pantry located at the University of North Georgia - Oconee Campus. There is an increasing number of college students with food insecurity issues. Many struggle with having enough money for gas, books, tuition, and food. I have attached a flyer that details the items they need. We will have collection boxes at the meeting. Let's work together to help those in need succeed.
