Give a Helping Hand with $1.00 donation
September 27– October 11, 2012
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!
September 27 – October 3, 2012
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 through 12 noon on October 2, 2012. Or drop off your canned goods at the USC bus during the Beat Hunger! Beat Georgia! Pep Rally at the Russell House on October 3!
Healthy Carolina Farmers Market
October 2, 2012
The University of South Carolina will host the Healthy Carolina Farmers Market on Tuesday, October 2 from 10 am to 2 pm. The market will take place on Greene Street in front of the Russell House. The market is a cash and carry process; and cash payment is due to the farmer at the time of purchase. Collaborating with the University on the “Beat Hunger” Can Drive, we would appreciate it if you brought a can with you to the farmers market to donate to Harvest Hope (fresh produce is also accepted)! Be sure to stop and visit the Carolina Dining booth! Come take a picture with “Big Spur” as we get ready to Beat Hunger and Beat Georgia!
Stuff A Bus
Stuff A Bus We want faculty, staff and students to “stuff it” … a bus that is! Chi Psi fraternity, the Athletic Department, Student Government, and 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 Wednesday, October 3. 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 Wednesday, October 3 at 1:30 pm at the conclusion of the BEAT HUNGER PEP rally, led by Cocky, University Officials, SGA Officers, Athletics, Department of Vehicle Management and Parking Services staff, and Chi Psi fraternity will caravan to Harvest Hope.
