Dear Jen:

 

Your food donation to our Feed The Hungry Dinner made so many people happy. Our students love these dinners as it enables them to buy a great meal, make a donation, and take time to share a meal with friends and faculty - so valuable when you're a commuter and there aren't many opportunities to socialize.

But, most importantly, your donation benefited our Feed The Hungry program which supports eight amazing local food pantries. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

As a way of showing his support, President Eastwick sends his sincere thanks.
