Enjoy Ice Cream and Help Feed a Family

12/3/2010 —

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 Dec. 3, 6, 7, and 8 from noon-1 p.m. outside the Lion’s Den of the Joe and Rosie Ruhl Student Community Center when students, faculty and staff will be selling ice cream for $.75 a scoop with the proceeds going to the Heifer Project. Heifer buttons will also be on sale for $.50.

The campus goal this year is to raise $1,000 to send two heifers (cows) to India. In previous years the campus has raised funds to send bucks, sheep, and rams to the coastal and northwestern districts of Orissa State in India: Puri, Cuttack, Mayurbhanj, and Suderga, as well as sending 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 the Heifer Project on campus, at (717) 771-4162 or axf25@psu.edu.
