Wingate University One Day, One Dog

On April 12, the hunger-fighting efforts at Wingate University are among a dozen service projects planned as part of the University’s annual One Day, One Dog event, during which students, alumni, employees and supporters are invited to give, serve and celebrate.  Wingate University collected 40,000 pounds of potatoes to give to individuals and local schools to share with students in their backpack buddy programs.  We received a special surprise when Heart for Monroe reached out to us to ask if we would like to participate!  With their help, we received 57 bags of potatoes to send home with our students who participate in the backpack buddy program!
