United Way Goal Achieved

With the help of the recent FoodFast effort, the Truman campus has achieved its goal of raising $56,000 for the United Way of Adair County.

The FoodFast campaign allows students to donate “meals” through Sodexho, with the cost of the meal going to the United Way. Student advisers in the residence halls went door to door collecting donations during the campaign. This year, FoodFast raised a stunning $5,144.80.

Campaign co-chairs Brad Chambers and Debra Kerby said they were thankful to all those who contributed this year.
Although the campus community has reached 100 percent of the established goal, donations can still be made until Nov. 14 to Chambers in the Advancement Office. After that, donations can be made directly to the United Way at 304 S. Franklin.
