Carroll University’s annual National Service Project food drive this year aims to boost the 2020 goal to 60,000 meals raised and 600 participants across the nation and beyond. Between April 1–30, Carroll will be working towards this goal to fill plates across the country and fulfill our mission.
Carroll is dedicated to its mission of service by getting involved, reaching out and giving back to helping hungry people in the community. Each year more and more alumni come together to help Carroll give back.
Over the past 10 years, Carroll alumni across the United States have provided over 377,000 meals to those facing hunger by donating food and monetary gifts. Last year, the project attracted more than 500 participants in 42 states who helped provide 58,201 meals during the university’s food drive.
Senior Director of Alumni Engagement Dolores Ocampo Brown said, “This is such an easy way for alumni to be engaged no matter where they are. They can have an impact in their local community, but still be part of this larger overall Carroll mission. It's an important thing to do.”
In partnership with Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin, the Carroll community will strive to help fill food pantries and provide healthy food to those facing hunger in the community. This year, donations will also help support the Carroll Cupboard, a program to help students with food insecurity on Carroll’s campus. Alumni will have the opportunity to give directly back to the students, and impact their lives.
