Pictured with some of the Quad-Cities Campus donations are work-study student Osama Hasan and BHC employees Jen Holldorf, Wendy Bock and Heather Bennett.

As part of the Black Hawk College 75th Anniversary Celebration, a kitchen and toiletries drive was held for the food pantries at both campuses.

Often times, kitchen supplies and toiletries are overlooked as needed supplies for food pantries.

The response from BHC employees and students – as well as community members – was overwhelming! Donations exceeded expectations.

Thank you for your support and contributions!
