Pay It Forward Week
Get Involved With Pay it Forward!
Southwestern Community College’s annual Pay it Forward (PIF) Week is coming Monday through Thursday, April 22-25, 2013!! During PIF Week, SWCC students, faculty, and staff get involved by encouraging positive behaviors and service to the community. The hope is that these efforts will ripple and spread community-wide in Creston, Osceola, and Red Oak.
MEALS FROM THE HEARTLAND
During PIF Week 2013, one of the main events will be a Mobile Hunger Fight event through Meals From the Heartland. The Mobile Hunger Fight will provide the opportunity for SWCC to sponsor a meal packaging event at the SWCC Student Center on Wed., April 24, 2013.
Currently, funds are being raised for the Mobile Hunger Fight. The more funds we raise, the more meals we package. Every donation counts! Currently, through Meals From the Heartland, it costs $.20 per meal. Blue plastic donation boxes are located around campus or your donation may be given directly to SWCC’s business office, located in the Administration Center. If your donation is $25 or more, it will be considered tax deductible.
Through Meals From the Heartland’s partnerships, their meals have fed more than 22 million hungry people in central Iowa, New Mexico, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Honduras, Haiti, Kenya, Dominican Republic, Philippines, Ethiopia, South Africa, and Tanzania. If you have questions about SWCC’s Mobile Hunger Event, please contact Meghan Kalvig, SWCC admissions representative.
