Lewis and Clark State College's Third Annual Send Hunger Packing campaign raised just over $1,450 at this year's Art Under the Elms Festival. The campaign collects funds and food items to be distributed by community organizations.
Earlier in April, connected food drivers helped raise over 1,500 pounds of food.
Send Hunger Packing is directed by Dr. Leif Hoffmann, Assistant Professor of Political Science, and Dr. Eleanor Downey, Professor of Social work, and aims to collect food and money for area shelters and food banks. The Poli-Sci Club, Anthropology Club and the Green Team joined in this year's fundraiser
All money and food items were distributed between the YWCA, Community Action Partners, The Roc, the Asotin Food Bank and the St. Vincent de Paul food bank.
