Thank you to everyone who participated in Philanthropy Day on Nov. 15.

Many departments chose that day to turn in their donated food items and four departments competed to build displays using the donated items.  Bonus points were awarded in the food pantry competition as follows:

1st place (100 points) – Financial Aid
2nd place (50 points) – Viking Child Care Center
3rd place tie (25 points) – Math & Engineering Science / Teacher Prep

There was so much food filling the stage that it was impossible to count, but we estimate that several thousand items were donated. Sue Smith in the Student Activities Office reported that eight students stopped by the pantry on Monday and she expected many more to stop by Tuesday in preparation for Thanksgiving.

Once again, thank you to everyone who contributed in some way; the Foundation hopes to make this an annual event.
