The Landis Center wrapped its second fundraiser for area nonprofits and will launch a third and final one on May 2.
The Lafayette community again stepped forward to assist local nonprofits who are supporting community members struggling with food and housing insecurities during COVID-19.
Landis Center student leaders Emily Cotter ’21, Annie Krege ’23, and Kevin Manogue ’22 organized three fundraisers. The first in March netted nearly $3,500 to support Second Harvest Food Bank. The second held in early April raised nearly $1,300 for Safe Harbor.
Landis partnered for the second event with three campus cosponsors: International Students Association, Alpha Phi Omega, and Sheesh.
The final fundraiser for ProJect of Easton is scheduled to begin May 2.
Landis organized the events because the pandemic has changed the way that students can work with our community partners.
“Since we are not able to support our community patterns in person, we wanted to find another way to support them,” says Cotter.
