Ogeechee Tech students helping at the Soup Kitchen at the First United Methodist Church of StatesboroOn Saturday, February 4, the Student Leadership Council (SLC) at Ogeechee Technical College sponsored the Statesboro Soup Kitchen at the First United Methodist Church in Statesboro.

Volunteers from the SLC, Adult Education, Early Childhood Care & Education, Dental Assisting, Radiologic Technology, and General Education served 134 hot meals of corn dogs, macaroni & cheese, fruit, and cookies. The group also prepared 55 to-go meals that included sandwiches, fruit, and cookies.

“It was really encouraging to see such a large group of volunteers involved for our first soup kitchen sponsorship of the year,” said Beckie Snyder, Administrative Assistant for AVPSA. “We hope to continue to build on this wonderful turnout and get more people at the college involved in our ‘Ogeechee on the Go’ efforts.”

This is the first of four Saturdays throughout the year that the SLC will sponsor. However, the Soup Kitchen is open from 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. every Saturday for service. 

Ogeechee on the Go is the name of Ogeechee Technical College’s community service initiative. OTC students and employees routinely participate in projects designed to support worthwhile causes within the community.
