"The Big Week of Giving" Will Center its Efforts Towards Food Disparity

The SERVE Center will partner with Greek Life and the Student Recreation Center to host various activities during the annual “Big Week of Giving” taking place Oct. 31-Nov. 5 to give back to food disparity in Kirksville and Adair County.

The donations and canned goods collected will be given to the North Central Missouri Food Bank and dispersed to the needy in Adair County.  
On Oct. 31, the campus will dress up and go trick-or-treating for canned goods. On Nov. 2, there will be walking tacos provided on the Quad for donations. Canned good collecting will take place in the Student Union Building all week long.

A volleyball tournament will take place 6-11 p.m. Oct. 31-Nov. 3 in the east court of the main gym in the Student Recreation Center. Playoffs will take place the afternoon of Nov. 5. Womens, mens and co-ed teams are welcome. Teams may consist of 6-10 players. The cost per team is $20 and will be used in the form of donations. Registration will take place Oct. 24-28 in the Student Union Building. Donations will be collected upon registration. Due to time constraints, the tournament will be a single elimination.

The week will end with the final canned goods count at Fireside Friday on Nov. 4 beginning at 3 p.m.
