Donation Made to Campus Food Pantry at Southwestern College

The Southwestern College social science division made a food donation to the campus food pantry which serves Southwestern College students with food insecurities.  The pantry, which operates year round, is especially important now as it serves students who may need to be in isolation or quarantine due to exposure to COVID-19.

The social sciences division made the donation in honor of the office of student services, who runs the pantry, in order to highlight the impact they have at SC.

 “This gift will both benefit our students and express to student services our great appreciation for all that they do for Southwestern College,” says Jackson Lashier, chair of social sciences

Lashier adds that their dedication to students, particularly in this uncertain time of COVID-19, has modeled the Builder way.

The campus food pantry is funded by donations predominantly from faculty and staff at Southwestern College.  Students are allowed to make appointments and are kept strictly confidential.

Items donated matched the favorite foods of members of the student services team, which includes: Dan Falk, vice president of student affairs and dean of students; Dawn Pleas, vice president for retention and student success; Anjaih Clemons-Williams, director of campus life; Sarah Hallinan, assistant dean of students and director of residence life; Elyse Achenbach, coordinator of international student services and enrollment; Kayleigh Richardson, assistant director of residence life; Keith McLaughlin, director of safety and security; Mary Ann Smith, wellness coordinator; and Teresa Nichols and Jason Haunschild, security officers.
