Volunteers collected 1,500 cans which will be donated to the Eastern Illinois Food Bank.
Thanasi Pesmajoglou, from the Office of Volunteer Programs, said, "So it's just an event to raise awareness help out our community and do good things for the people that are suffering."
An estimated one in eight people in Illinois are impoverished. Donations are always accepted. Everyone is encouraged to get involved and help.
