Huntington, W.Va. - Beginning Monday, September 9, Mountwest Community & Technical College will be collecting donations of non-perishable food items for the Huntington Area Food Bank as part of Hunger Action Month.

The drive will continue through September 30, and donors will receive one entry into a drawing for gift certificates to local businesses for every five items donated. 

“We feel it’s important to show our community that Mountwest is going to try to do everything we can to stomp out hunger in our little corner of the world,” said Teresa Blankenship, Facilities Event Coordinator for Mountwest.
