The Gamma chapter of Alpha Theta Delta is hosting a food drive for the holiday season.

The coed multicultural Christian fraternity plans to host the Theta Food Drive from today to Dec. 21. The food donations will be delivered to the Tucson Community Food Bank where the volunteers will sort through the donation and packing boxes.

Food donations can be dropped off at the Blue Chip Area near the Center for Student Involvement and Leadership on the fourth floor of the Student Union Memorial Center. Donations can also be dropped off with the African-American Student Affairs in the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Student Center, Room 209.

The Community Food Bank is requesting donation of canned vegetables, boxed breakfast cereals, canned tuna, macaroni and cheese, peanut butter, canned tomato products and canned soups.

Leadership workshop today

The Fall Leadership Workshop Series from the Center of Student Involvement and Leadership plans to host a workshop for students today.

The workshops are designed to develop competence in leadership areas. Participants will gain valuable skills they can apply to their own lives, organizations they are affiliated with and in the classroom.

Students earn a certificate of leadership enrichment if they complete seven or more workshops during the academic year, or become a certified UA student leader by attending more than 20 over three semesters.

Today's free lesson will take place at 5 p.m. in the Student Union Memorial Center in the Ventana Room.
