Food Fast Offers Convenient Option for United Way Donation

Sodexo, Residence Life and the United Way are teaming up again this year for the 2009 Food Fast.

Last year, students donated more than $5,000 through the Food Fast, which helped to exceed Truman’s campaign goal of $56,000. This year, Truman’s goal is again set at $56,000.

Money raised for the United Way is used to fund programs and agencies that benefit the local community, including: the Boy Scouts, the Girl Scouts, the  American Red Cross, the  Salvation Army, Victim Support Services, Hospice and more.
