    Last year's Stuff-A-Cruiser was a huge success. Help make this year's even more successful.

QCC’s annual holiday program, Feed-A-Family was developed to help families in need celebrate the holidays. For decades the program has been providing holiday meals to QCC families and bringing good will to all through the simple act of giving. Last year, QCC Campus Police and Counseling Services teamed up with Stuff-A-Cruiser, becoming an important support program to the college’s Feed-A-Family Program.This year the college will once again offer both programs to help those in need.

For those looking to nominate someone; fill out the nomination form and provide the name and additional required information of students, faculty or staff who may need assistance during this holiday season. Please keep nominations confidential and submit them in a sealed envelope to QCC mailbox #144. The college community forwards the names and pertinent data to the Feed-A- Family Committee. To date, no one has been turned away.

All cash donations received for the Feed-A-Family program are used to purchase gift cards to a local grocery store. In addition to monetary donations, the QCC Campus Police are asking faculty, staff and students to stop by one of their Stuff-A-Cruiser events where faculty, staff and students can bring a new, unwrapped toy, gift card or movie tickets for a Feed-A-Family child. Please take some time and join the QCC Police and other assisting departments for some hot cocoa and a small token of appreciation. 

Those wishing to make a donation can drop off their donation at:
