Pro Humanitate Day 2015

Fighting Childhood Hunger

One in 5 American children lives without consistent access to adequate food. For these children and their families, summer can be especially hard, as they lose access to the school breakfasts and lunches that they rely upon.

This May 9, we can turn the tables on childhood hunger.

By joining fellow Deacs in your local community, and across the nation, you can raise food and awareness that can make a real difference in the lives of hungry children and their families. It’s a chance to connect with old friends and to make a few new ones, while doing our part to make sure that no child goes hungry this summer.
Together, we’ll show the world that good wears black.

To Participate:

Participating is easy, and you have options.
