Northwest Missouri State University’s Minority Men’s Organization recently collected more than 200 cans of food and 40 clothing items during its Bowling for a Greater Good event.

More than 150 Northwest students and community members attended the Nov. 13 event, which featured music and food at Bearcat Lanes in Maryville. Patrons were allowed to bowl one game for free in exchange for canned goods and clothing items.

The donations were given to the Wesley Student Center, which will distribute the items to area churches serving people in need.

Minority Men’s Organization is a Northwest student organization that is open to all male students. The organization seeks to aid in the development of men in college, while boosting the retention and graduation rate of minorities and providing a safe environment.

The organization has 35 active members. Adam McNairy, a senior graphic design major from Kansas City, serves as the organization’s president.

Although the group aims to enhance the development and character of minority undergraduate members, McNairy said the group also seeks diversity within its organization.

“The word minority can be used to describe many different people,” McNairy said. “In any way, shape or form, everyone is a minority. We’re open to everyone. We’re trying to develop leaders and make sure people feel involved and connected to the University.”
