Thanks to a challenge by Mrs. Jennifer Lester Benson to her colleagues at Emmanuel College, EC receives the Can of Beans Award as runner-up in the recent Madison County Rotary Club’s Food Drive for the Madison County Food Bank.
This is part of the Rotary Has Heart challenge from Rotary International.
“We were happy to donate 106 food items and 21 toiletries toward this worthy cause,” says Benson, Emmanuel College’s School of Business Dean and Communication Department Chair.
"I have enjoyed being a member of Rotary International for 17 years, the majority of this with the Madison County Rotary Club.
"The Rotary motto is Service Above Self, and it is wonderful to work for a college that supports not only the good works in its surrounding communities but this very worthy principle!"
Madison County Rotary Club members, their businesses and associates brought in 746 food items, 226 toiletries, and raised $450 for the Madison County Food Bank.
