Thank you to all of the AWESOME students and faculty who came out on a cold and rainy Saturday morning to give back to their community! Way to go Luke Forrister, Susan Riello, Edward Brophy, Kereece Williams, Miguel Olivares, Phil Cundari, Amy Hooker, & Jacob Wiseman, of CIS Society and Oliva Atkin & Kristina Maceira from SHRM@QU as well as Profs. Jones, Dunaway, Fullick, and Jagiela!
From Prof. Kiku Jones: “Thank you all for your generous donations to the food drive. While it was too close to call which department received the most donations, those in need are the winners. We delivered four full bins and many extra bags of items that were overflow. There are over 155,000 children in Connecticut in a food insecure situation. Over 38,000 of them are in the New Haven area. Your thoughtful food and personal care donations will help in combating some of this need. The month with the lowest donations for food banks tends to be January – everyone gives during the holiday season and then donations drop until the next holiday season. I hope that you will continue your giving spirit throughout the year.”
