Gannon University Students Combat Hunger with Golden Harvest Initiative
Posted: April 8, 2016
Gannon University is going door-to-door from 1 - 3 p.m.
Sunday in the Erie community to collect donations to help combat
hunger as part of the Golden Harvest initiative.
Golden Harvest is a Gannon-sponsored event that is a
collaborative effort between honor societies at the University and
the Erie community. Its main objective is to revive a project
intended to aid in food insecurity issues in Erie - with your
Students will be going door-to-door Sunday afternoon to collect
donations of easily made foods - Easy Mac, tuna, canned soup, etc.,
- as well as crackers, canned veggies, potatoes, apples and more.
The students will also be accepting any toiletry items you may have
and are willing to donate such as soap, shampoo, tissues, etc.
Food insecurity, the lack of adequate access to sufficient
quantities of affordable and nutritious food, affects one in three
Erie residents. With your generous contributions this Sunday, you
will be benefitting your community by providing resources to local
food banks operated by the Erie City Mission, Salvation Army, St.
Paul's Episcopal Church, St. Patrick's Church and St. Peter
If you will not be home during 1 and 3 p.m. and wish to
help your neighbors, please put any donations in a bag labeled
"Golden Harvest" on your front porch. The Gannon and Erie
communities appreciate your help in addressing this
