Second Harvest Food Bank received more than 1,200 pounds of food thanks to a YSU business administration organization.
A group of students with Enactus presented Second Harvest with non-perishable food items and $150.
The students organized a collection drive over the past month as part of the Campbell Soup Company’s Let’s Can Hunger initiative. Donations came from students, faculty and staff within the Williamson College of Business.
“We took this food drive because there are 39,000 children in our immediate area who live in poverty, and one in six people don’t know where their next meal’s going to come from,” said YSU Enactus member Paige Rassega.
Enactus stands for Students in Free Enterprise. The group teaches students how to be philanthropic entrepreneurs.
