Last Friday, our students, staff, and faculty from the Master of Accounting Program joined hands and volunteered with the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina. This organization has one goal: “No One Goes Hungry in Central & Eastern North Carolina”. In order to achieve this goal, the food bank receives, sorts, and distributes over 70 million pounds of food annually to people in need, but they can’t do it alone.
So, last Friday, we sent volunteers in to help with the sorting process. As a team, we sorted 17 pallets of apples, potatoes, and zucchini – making over 14,315 meals for people in need.
This event — fun for all of us — also shows how our class exhibits leadership in both the classroom and industry while doing our part in the community and helping to make sure that no one goes hungry.
