The Biological and Allied Health Science club recently held a food drive for the Columbia County Volunteers in Medicine Clinic. The clinic, located in Mifflinville, and founded by BU Biology alumnus Bette Grey, provides free health care for those without health insurance. The clinic also maintains a small food pantry for those patients needing this additional support. Club members, faculty, and staff from the College of Science and Technology collected non-perishable food and personal care items for the clinic. Through many generous donations, four boxes of food and personal care items were delivered to the clinic on Tuesday December 4th. This food drive was held in connection with an ornament contest where students and their faculty mentors were encouraged to make an ornament from laboratory supplies. The entry fee to enter the ornament contest was two non-perishable food items. Seven laboratory groups participated in the contest. The first place ornament was created by Andrew Cross from Dr. Surmacz's Lab and the second place ornament was created by Lauren Bunnell from Dr. Beishline's lab.  Dr. Angela Hess and Dr. Jennifer Venditti serve as co-advisors for the club.
