Pooky’s Pantry Is Fully Stocked Thanks to Donations

A Message from Melissa Pedone and Stanton Reed, Interim Presidents, Osceola, Lake Nona and Poinciana Campuses

In late August, Valencia’s collegewide Student Development team initiated the “Restock to Reopen Challenge” to assist in restocking Pooky’s Pantry that had been empty for the past year and a half. After a month of collecting, Pooky’s Pantry is now fully restocked with a large number of canned, boxed, packaged goods and hygiene products. Thank you to all who donated and helped reach the goal!

We are still accepting donations, however, the pantry is just about full at the moment.

Faculty and staff are encouraged to promote this free and essential service to Valencia students. Students can visit the Student Development office, Osceola Campus, building 2, room 150.

For questions, email Trinity Tresner, student development, program specialist, at ttresner@valenciacollege.edu.
