4th annual 'Pack the Pumpkin'


As the fall season kicks off, pumpkins are in high demand. But, one group used the season to collect other items for those in need.

A group of psychology students at John Wood Community College held the 4th annual 'Pack the Pumpkin' at the Quincy Hy-Vee off Harrison. The goal was to collect non-perishable items but, also to teach the students the value of serving others -- as addressed in Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs.

The goal for Monday was to collect 500 non-perishable items; last year the group raised 478 items.
