Beat Hunger in the Midlands


Beat Hunger in the Midlands!

November 6– 12, 2013

Give a Helping Hand with $1.00 donation

November 6 - 12, 2013

Carolina Dining/Sodexo is giving a hand to South Carolinians in need.  All on-campus dining locations will be selling “Helping Hands” for $1.00 to help raise money for Harvest Hope. 


Faculty and Staff – We need you!

November 6 - 12, 2013

It’s sometimes difficult for students to have canned goods on hand to donate, so we are putting a special call out to Faculty and Staff of the university to help support this important food drive.  Please drop off canned goods this week and make an impact! 


Collection bins are located in the Russell House Grand Market Place, Gamecock Park, Greek Village Chi Psi House, USC Police Department, Strom Wellness Center Lobby, 1600 Hampton Street Administration Building, the Dodie Athletic Academic Center and the Rice Athletic Administration building and Transportation Services through 12 noon on November 12, 2013.  Or drop off your canned goods at the USC bus during the Beat Hunger!  Beat Florida!  Pep Rally at the Russell House on November 12 between 11:30 am - 1:00 pm!


Stuff A Bus

We need faculty, staff and students to “stuff it” … a bus that is!  Chi Psi fraternity, the Athletic Department, and the Department of Vehicle Management and Parking Services will sponsor the “Stuff A Bus” to beat hunger campaign.  A University of South Carolina bus will be in front of the Russell House on Tuesday, November 12.  All food items collected during the week will go on the bus.  The goal is to fill one bus … or maybe even more … with canned goods for Harvest Hope.  On Tuesday, November 12 at 1:00 pm at the conclusion of the BEAT HUNGER PEP rally, led by Cocky, University Officials, Athletics, Department of Vehicle Management and Parking Services staff, and Chi Psi fraternity will caravan to Harvest Hope.


Greeks Beat Hunger
