Palomar College will be hosting several events for the Thanksgiving holiday this year:
Nov. 20: Holiday Turkey and Food Distribution
On Saturday, Nov. 20, employees and staff of Palomar College will be handing out turkeys, perishables, and canned goods to any and all members of the community who choose to drive through Parking lot 12 at the San Marcos campus, starting at 8 a.m.
Pack the Pantry Virtual Food Drive
For the third year in a row and the first time virtually, Palomar College will be partnering with other schools in the San Diego and Imperial Counties Community College Association to accept monetary donations to benefit local community college students facing hunger.
Donate to the Virtual Food Pantry here.
Starting Nov. 15, Palomar College begins its annual event to give donors the opportunity to aid in the creation of scholarships, textbooks, and emergency grants. Every donation made will then be matched by a local patron. The event ends on Nov. 30.

“The Palomar College community is so generous, and with the holidays around the corner, we have still more opportunities to support our students and the community at large during this time of ongoing need,” said Palomar College Superintendent/President Dr. Star Rivera-Lacey, in an article detailing the events.
