The Max Mutchnick Campus Center is holding its annual holiday food drive. Canned and other non-perishable food items will be collected to benefit the Greater Boston Food Bank. Every can counts! Emerson community members are encouraged to donate an item when they make a reservation, attend a meeting or event at the Campus Center, or as they are able to between now and the end of the semester. Drop off food at the Information Booth, located on the first floor of the Campus Center.
