Enjoy Ice Cream and Help Feed a Family

11/28/2007 —

Penn State York students, faculty, and staff are once again raising money for the Heifer Project; an international organization which helps hungry families feed themselves.   Enjoy some ice cream on Nov. 26, 27, 28  and Dec. 3, 4, 5, and 6 at noon outside the Lion’s Den of the Main Classroom Building when students, faculty and staff will be selling ice cream with the proceeds going to the Heifer Project.

The campus goal this year is to raise $1,000 to send bucks, sheep, and rams to the coastal and northwestern districts of Orissa State in India: Puri, Cuttack, Mayurbhanj, and Sudergarh.    Last year the campus raised $636.05, enough money for two water buffalo and a goat for the Lusime Women’s Draft Cattle Project in Zambia.

Heifer International’s mission is to work with communities to end hunger and poverty and to care for the earth.   This simple idea of giving families a source of food rather than short-term relief caught on and has continued for more than 60 years.   Help Penn State York help others to feed themselves.

For more information on this project, please contact Ann Fetterman, instructor in English, director of the writing lab, and the point person for volunteer activities on campus, at (717) 771-4162 or axf25@psu.edu.
