Earlier this winter, a number of offices in Enrollment Management competed to see who could give the most to support UNCG students in need through the Spartan Pantry. The pantry provides food assistance to any Spartans in need.
The UNCG offices collected a total of 1,225 food items and $140 in cash.
That will help students in need this semester.
Emily Saine, assistant to the director at Wesley-Luther Campus Ministries, thanked the participants for their “tremendous help getting the shelves up to a manageable amount of food for distribution.”
The food donations are needed greatly, this time of year, she explained. “The holidays bring an abundance of food but people start to cut back in the new year and our shelves get bare. We really appreciate you all allowing us to get through this first month that would normally be low donations.”
The Undergraduate Admissions staff engagement committee members are Jana Henderson (the point person for this project), Annette Cline, Sarah Griffin, Jill Ingram and Charlie Swing.
