During the COVID-19 outbreak, there is an even greater need to provide food for people in need. That’s why Carroll University’s Annual National Service Project will continue this year, although there will be changes in how donations are collected. There will be no on-site or hands-on collections or sorting this year.
 
All financial contributions will be made online or via text. Options include donating funds to Feeding America or supporting Carroll’s Cupboard, which provides a variety of items to food-insecure individuals in the campus community. To donate via mobile phone, text "PIONEERS" to 41444 to donate directly to Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin. 
 
“Carroll University is built on community service, and we intend to honor that commitment during this increased time of need,” said Zach Staszewski, assistant director of alumni engagement. “Our alumni always have been extremely generous in supporting this effort, and we their want to thank them for demonstrating their devotion to giving back.”
 
This year’s campaign runs throughout the month of April and, in the past decade, has provided more than 377,000 meals to hungry families. Just one dollar can provide three meals; $365 can feed one person for an entire year.
 
Carroll alumni in communities across the country are mobilizing to reach the overall goal to provide 60,000 meals to those in need this year.
