We are incredibly happy to share the success of our campaign to raise money for the Spartan Food Pantry. This past Thursday evening, we held our Inspiration to Innovation Gala here on campus at which we publically shared our message on the battle against student hunger. In addition to all proceeds benefitting the Student Hunger Fund, we received roughly $25,000 in donations made directly to the crowdfunding campaign from gala attendees. With the campaign now concluded, we are pleased to announce that we’ve raised $36,500, which is more than twice our original goal of $15,000!
After raising our goal to $20,000 with the hope of being able to fund non-perishables and toiletries for the pantry, we quickly exceeded that number and the gifts continued to come in. It was truly moving, and we are deeply grateful to each and every one of you who helped support the campaign with your generosity. We look forward to updating you all on the status of the pantry opening and, once again, appreciate all of your support.
