Landis Center student leaders Emily Cotter ’21, Annie Krege ’23, and Kevin Manogue ’22 have organized three fundraisers to aid local nonprofits.

The wordmark Lafayette Landis Center for Community Engagement“Food and housing insecurity are among the biggest impacts the COVID-19 pandemic is having on our community, so we intentionally chose organizations that served the community in these ways,” says Krege.

The students used their first fundraiser to support Second Harvest Food Bank. It ran from March 8-14 and collected nearly $3,500. Landis partnered with several cosponsors, including Alpha Gamma Delta, Alpha Phi, Chi Phi, Delta Gamma, Delta Kappa Epsilon, Delta Upsilon, Kappa Kappa Gamma, Phi Psi, and Pi Phi.

The second fundraiser runs April 11-17 and will support Safe Harbor.

“The pandemic has changed the way that students can work with our community partners,” says Cotter. “Since we are not able to support our community partners in person, we wanted to find another way to support them.”

“Sponsoring fundraisers on their behalf allowed us to stay connected with the community virtually,” adds Manogue.

The third fundraiser will run in May and support ProJeCt of Easton.
