SBBCollege Ventura spreads Christmas cheer

SBB College Ventura Food Pantry

SBBCollege Ventura has helped those less fortunate this holiday season by helping out at a local food pantry, as well as providing their own students in financial need with holiday care packages.

Staff and students took time out of their schedules to distribute food to those in need at the Pantry Nuevo in Ventura. The pantry is run by Project Understanding, a non-profit organization that helps those in need and serves the Western Ventura County. The pantry provides groceries to families in the community who need help providing food to their family with their tight financial budget.

To help spread the festive goodwill even further, the Campus also helped sort donated clothes that would be delivered to a local children’s shelter.

Matthew Johnston, SBBCollege President, comments: ‘The holidays are a very difficult time for some people and our students and staff were happy to help in their own small way. They found it an incredibly rewarding experience and were touched by the warmth and gratitude of those they had helped.’

This holiday season the Ventura Campus is also helping out their own students. Selling baked goods, chicken posole and other food items in a holiday fundraiser, the staff and faculty will use the funds to create student care packages. Students who are facing a financial need this holiday season will be given one of the care packages – complete with fixings for a holiday dinner and items to help students and their families enjoy this holiday season.
