G.O. Ministries benefit from Ashtabula Campus ChallengePosted Mar. 27, 2012
Students on the Kent State University at Ashtabula Campus were challenged by students from another regional campus to "can hunger." Ashtabula students, faculty and staff responded with enthusiasm.
The Let’s Can Hunger Challenge generated more than 200 canned goods for donation on the Ashtabula Campus. Students then created a sculpture from the cans in the Campus Library. The photo of the sculpture garnered nearly 90 votes.
After the voting was complete, campus Student Ambassadors delivered the donated items to G.O. Ministries of Ashtabula.
The challenge to create a sculpture out of the donated cans and then have people vote on the photos was issued to all regional campuses of Kent State University by a student organization on the Trumbull Campus. Voting was done via facebook early in March.
The Campbell’s Let’s Can Hunger Challenge, sponsored by Campbell Soup Company, is a comprehensive hunger challenge including: raising awareness, translating awareness to action in the form of urgent hunger relief and empowering those in need to defeat the cycle of hunger.
