Every year a social issue is identified and integrated throughout the university. Students participate in community service projects and educational programs to raise awareness and make a difference. The social issue for the 2013-2014 year is Hunger.
For reoccurring, monthly service activities which support the mission of the Drury Impact Project visit the Project Panthers page.
Stomp Out Hunger Shoe Drive benefitting Sole Food
Join Drury University, Missouri State, Ozarks Technical College, Evangel and Southwest Baptist University in making a difference in the global community through the Stomp Out Hunger Shoe Drive benefiting Sole Food. For this event, the campus communities will be collecting used shoes to donate to Sole Food. Sole Food is a local project that partners with and benefits Shoeman Water Projects and Friends Against Hunger to reduce hunger locally and internationally one shoe at a time.
Through Sole Food, one pair of shoes provides three meals, supports job creation in underdeveloped countries, supports clean water initiatives through Shoeman Water Project, and is worn by someone who needs them! Who knew one pair of shoes could do so much?
Any types of shoes are accepted!
To donate, bring your shoes to Drury and place them in one of the designated bins located across campus.
The deadline to donate shoes is October 25th.
To learn how Sole Food turns your donated shoes into resources to help fight hunger, visit their website.
Panther Run benefitting Care to Learn
October 5th, 2013 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
Care to Learn provides immediate funding to meet emergent health, hunger, and hygiene needs so every child can be successful in school. A toothbrush. A coat. Deodorant. Breakfast. These are the things that stand between children and belonging—basic unmet needs that cause pain and embarrassment.
The Panther Run is a 5k, 10k, and 15k race put on here at Drury University to benefit Care to Learn . Sign up to run or work this event. To sign up to volunteer, run, walk or stroll visit the Panther Run website http://www.panther-run.com/
