Pack the Pantry, an annual event to raise awareness and resources for the Athens Food Pantry took place earlier this year.
“SAB has provided me with everything I could have asked for as a student of Ohio University: professional growth, and incredible support system, lifelong connections, the confidence to seek new opportunities, a deep connection with the campus and greater community, and so much more. Now, I am lucky enough get to help our incoming members gain meaningful experiences from their time in this special place, and instill a passion for giving back so that the community can remain strong for the generations to come.”
What is the Philanthropy Committee?
The Philanthropy Committee exists to create and coordinate Student Alumni Board's involvement in and service to charitable endeavors in the Athens community and surrounding area.
Pack the Pantry is a canned food drive during Homecoming week that raises food and funds for the Athens County Food Pantry.
Other service opportunities at the Athens County Food Pantry, Passion Works, United Campus Ministry, and other nonprofits in the Athens community occur depending on the semester, per our organization’s interests.
