Thank you to all of the AWESOME students and faculty who donated food and personal care items to benefit the CT Food Bank. Special shout outs to Deidre Hocevar, David Bouton, Olivia Atkin, Prof. Julia Fullick-Jagiela, and the CIS Department Faculty.
On January 26, 2016, Olivia and David delivered three full bins to the Food Bank which weighed in at 115lbs total. The Food Bank says that will feed 96 people.
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.”
