Students will come together and make sandwiches for the Samaritan Center, a local nonprofit organization committed to serving the hungry and those in need in Central New York in order to promote their welfare, dignity and self-sufficiency.
“We are looking forward to another successful year,” says Evan Konecky, a graduate assistant in the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs. “We would love to see this become a staple service project for the Greek life community.”
This is the second year that theUniversity’s Greek community is participating as a collective whole to support the event. Last year, the Greek community made more than 1,800 sandwiches for those in need. This year’s goal is 2,000 sandwiches. TOPS Friendly Markets, a leading full-service grocery retailer, is partnering with Greek Life and is donating the peanut butter, jelly and bread for this year’s event.
