During the week of Oct. 22 students participated in the Food Fast campaign by donating meals and dining dollars as contributions towards the United Way goal. Both student advisers and Sodexo staff played an integral role in the campaign’s promotion and implementation. Members of the Food Fast committee presented a check to John Dungan, head of the Adair County United Way, following the conclusion of the program.

To make a donation, contact Sally Herleth,, or Pam Ryan,, for a pledge form. Donations support the United Way of Adair County. The local United Way has among the lowest overhead in the nation, allowing a greater percentage of contributions to go straight to local programs helping people in the area pursue their goals of education, income and health.
