Students collect more than 2,100 pounds of food for local pantry
Northwest Missouri State University organizations collected more than 2,100 pounds of food for the Ministry Center during the American Marketing Association’s annual trick-or-treat for canned goods Oct. 27.
With the American Marketing Association taking the lead, students from Delta Mu Delta, Ad Ink, Alpha Sigma Alpha, Phi Delta Theta, Sigma Sigma Sigma and Tau Kappa Epsilon also participated in this year’s event.
In the end, more than 100 Northwest students helped make the collection a success, said Allison Hoffmann, AMA advisor and instructor in the Department of Marketing and Management.
“We are very pleased with the success of the trick-or-treat for canned goods benefiting the Ministry Center,” Hoffmann said. “It was great to see students from many different organizations work together with the common goal of helping area residents in need. Maryville residents were very generous with their donations.”
Students collected items from University departments and by going door-to-door in the Maryville community. With a few Ministry Center staff volunteers, students also helped weigh, sort, organize and put away all of the food they collected.
