05/16/11 A series of collections by the Ancilla College community allowed the Donaldson-based College to provide donations of non-perishable food items and cash to Marshall County’s Neighborhood Community Food Pantry and the Community Services of Starke County.
College representatives visited both organizations with food items and cash collected from Ancilla’s First Tuesday Collection and Gratitude Day in May, as well as the Graduation Collection that took place on May 7.
According to Sr. Carleen Wrasman, PHJC, the cash donations enabled the pantries to purchase needed food items at a reduced price.
“A generous group of donors united to provide food to persons in the two counties, and each donor was able to express gratitude for all of God’s gifts,” said Wrasman.
Ancilla College is a Catholic, two-year, co-educational, liberal arts college in Donaldson, Indiana sponsored by the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ.
