Collins School Students Dish up Book Drive For Newly Opened Charter High School

The Collins School of Hospitality Management students are helping to collect library books for the newly-developed School of Arts and Enterprise. Students in HRT 383, the class that runs dinner shifts at the Restaurant at Kellogg Ranch on campus, will collect new and used books of fiction and nonfiction that are suitable for young adult readers. To sweeten the deal, guests who donate a book during dinner will receive a complimentary Apple Crisp dessert, a restaurant favorite served with Dr. Bob?s Tahitian vanilla bean ice cream.

Students hope to collect 1,000 books for the School of Arts and Enterprise, a tuition-free public charter high school located in the Pomona Arts Colony.

?It's important to give back to the community,? says Ben Dewald, associate professor in The Collins School of Hospitality Management. ?To involve the community and do some charity work will improve the students? business, and also inspire student staff to be more responsible and happy about their job.?

The book drive and free Apple Crisp promotion will extend through the end of the spring quarter. The Restaurant at Kellogg Ranch is open for lunch at 11:30 a.m. Mondays through Fridays until June 4, and open for dinner at 6 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays until June 5.
