Wow! Thank you for all of the support you have shown for this important project! In just two short weeks we were able to surpass our goal of $10,000 AND collect hundreds of food items to open the THRIVE Food Pantry at KUMC.
Our KUMC community has also been reaching out with the most encouraging words:
"It seems so WRONG that people need to go hungry – anywhere – but certainly within our community."
"Last night my wife asked me if the Food Pantry would take food. I have her to thank for asking the question that came with her comment that we didn't need all the boxes of cereal we had in the cupboard, not if there were students who were hungry."
"Thank you for taking up this important initiative. If you look for food insecurity on college campuses, you are sure to find it."
We have upped our goal to $15,000 because we know that the funds will be necessary to not just start our food pantry but ensure that it THRIVES!
Thank you for your continued support!
