Ship gives back
during homecoming celebration
The Shippensburg University community donated its time and
talent and fundraised more than $16,000 for two area non-profit organizations
during its homecoming celebration last month.
On Friday, Oct. 20, students and alumni gave their service
to the King’s Kettle Food Pantry. Volunteers stocked shelves and sorted food
items for the organization. The pantry provides canned and dry goods to more
than 300 families in the Shippensburg community.
Ship’s Army ROTC Raider Battalion raised $2,000 for the
Boulder Crest Retreat during its annual homecoming 5k/10k race on Oct. 21. Boulder Crest
provides free, short-duration, high-impact retreats for combat veterans and
their families. These retreats are structured to improve the physical,
emotional, spiritual and economic well-being of our nation’s veterans.
The Homecoming Court raised over $14,000 through fundraisers
leading up to and during homecoming weekend. The money was donated to The
Harbor of Shippensburg, a sober social place and recovery house.
