  •  Hunger Week; Volunteer to Bag Beans!

     

     

    Want to directly help prevent hunger in your local community? As part of Hunger Week, you  can volunteer to bag beans for our local farm workers! We will be redistributing 300 lbs. of pinto beans into portions of beans for a family of four and then taking them to local farms and handing them out to the workers.

    When?

    Wednesday May 22nd from 4:00pm to 6:00pm

    Where?

    The Forge!

    Why?

    You can directly help your local community,

    whether it’s for five minutes or an hour, it’s up to you!

     

    It is also a way to get involved with SCU’s newest club BTGAP, Bridging the Gap to Alleviating Poverty. The club has a lot of opportunities available for its members, so get involved now!

    There will be snacks provided courtesy of BTGAP.

     

    We hope to see you there! This is an easy way to positively impact our local community, as well as a great opportunity to get involved on campus in SCU’s newest club BTGAP!
