Carroll University’s Residence Life staff, in partnership with the Physician Assistant Club, Volunteer Center, Athletics Department and WCTC’s Campus Cupboard will sponsor the third annual “Stuff the Truck” event. Collections will be from Nov. 12-16. Non-perishable food items may be dropped off at the Todd Wehr Memorial Library, Campus Center, Student Affairs Office, residence halls and Center for Graduate Studies.
