The impact your gift has made

August 01, 2019

The Panther Pantry, located in the lower level of Maucker Union, has been providing food and necessities to students since January 14, 2019.  In the initial month, there were 15 students who registered to utilize the pantry with a total of 17 visits by those students.  By April, over 130 students were registered, using the pantry 240 times in that month alone.  At the end of July, we now have 165 students that have accessed the pantry 864 times in these first seven months.  Because of your generosity, we have been able to provide 8,323 pounds of food and necessities to students experiencing food insecurity.  The need to assist students will continue to grow and we are extremely grateful for your gift to make a difference in their lives. Thank you! 

Thank you!
