“Hunger Knows no Season,” was the theme of the first annual UW-RF Student Valentine’s Day Food Drive.
Thank you River Falls for generously giving to the students who came knocking to collect for the River Falls Food Pantry.
Rick Pechacek, Food Pantry president, was extremely pleased at the 1,345 pounds collected.
Four campus ministries joined efforts to provide their members and friends with this community service project.
College students are often portrayed negatively due to poor choices that a few make.
This group of students braved cold temperatures to show that they not only could help the community where they attend school — by giving back in a tangible way — but also got out the message that college students do make good choices.
If you were one of the prepared homes that left a bag of food on your doorstep for us to pick up and we didn’t make it to your house, we do apologize. It was a bigger job than first thought.
You can drop off the items at Ezekiel Lutheran Church, 202 S. Second St., at the main office entrance, weekdays, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
A huge thanks also goes to those who collected the food items: Campus Crusade, The Journey House, InterVarsity and The Newman Club. Well done, good and faithful servants.
One last thanks goes to the churches and individuals that gave us a hot lunch when the students returned to Ezekiel. it really hit the spot.
Sue Watters, UW-RF advisor to Campus Crusade for Christ
