Ten Tons of Love seeking volunteers

Ten Tons of Love (TTL) is Syracuse University and the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry’s semi-annual food and clothing drive. Last year, more than 45 tons of donated goods were collected. The TTL program collects non-perishable food, clothing, furniture and other used items from on-campus and off-campus student residences.

Ten Tons of Love is only possible with the assistance of many volunteers to help load, move and sort all the donated items. The organizers are looking for volunteers to help with the drive. The items collected are distributed to local charities and individuals in need in the Syracuse community.

Volunteers are needed to assist with loading and moving April 27-May 16, from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Volunteers should meet at Goldstein Student Center on South Campus and will travel to the residence halls to load donated items into trucks to be taken to First English Lutheran Church. The shift ends at 1 p.m. Transportation and lunch is provided. This opportunity involves some heavy lifting. To volunteer, register online at http://tentons.syr.edu.

To volunteer for opportunities that do not involve heavy lifting, call Paula Hughson at First English Lutheran Church at (315) 471-1678.

For more information, call (315) 443-5489 or email offcampus@syr.edu.
