UR a Force for Good – September Partner

Throughout the remainder of the calendar year, while we work remotely, the Internal Engagement Committee will be partnering with local charities to create opportunities for us to give back to our community. Each month we will highlight a charity and offer ways for each of us to partner with them. These could include but are not limited to acts of service, food & clothing donations, letter writing, grocery shopping for seniors, and financial donations. 

While we originally planned to partner with REAL Services this month, to better serve our community partners, we’ll be working with them in November. This month, please join us in fighting hunger. For those who didn’t know, September is National Hunger Awareness Month. What better way to serve our community than by providing food donations to those in need. We will be partnering with Meals With Muffet to collect food for the Food Bank of Northern Indiana. We encourage you to collect, throughout the month of September, non-perishable items for donation. Muffet’s goal is to collect 100,000 lbs of food during the month so let’s see what UR can do to move the needle towards that goal! Stay tuned for details about where/when to drop off donations.
