Buddy Pack Walk Supports Food Bank

The third Buddy Pack Walk supported a total of 66 Buddy Packs, meals prepared by the Food Bank for Central and Northeast Missouri that will go to children from low-income families.

Multiple Truman departments competed in the walk to support the program. In first place was the Health and Exercise Science Department, which raised $1,281. Education followed in second place, raising $988. In third place was the McNair Program, earning $370. There were 100 volunteers in total, many of which came from Truman.

To further support the food bank, Truman students will be trick-or-treating for canned goods from 4-6 p.m. Oct. 19. The event coincides with Homecoming festivities and is part of the annual Big Week of Giving
