Strong Finish November!

December 05, 2018

November has ended, and so has our great month of campaigning!  Thank you to all who donated to help our students!  We surpassed our second goal of $3500!  Together, you raised $4115 for the pantry!  The funds will help us in filling Raider Red’s Food Pantry so that any TTU student facing hunger or food insecurity will not face hunger.  Students are always amazed that the food in the food pantry are all donations.  Some are shocked to see that the food pantry is a real place and are thankful that it is available to them.

 

With the donated funds, we will be able to supplement the food we run out of the fastest or are in need of on our shelves.  If you find yourself wanting to further support Raider Red’s Food Pantry throughout the year, there are different ways you can do so!  You can donate items, shop from our Amazon wishlist, donate electronically to our fund, or donate cash/check in person.  More details below.

 

We will be sharing updates throughout the year, so be sure to follow up to get updates on our project.  You can also check us out on foodpantry.ttu.edu and on our Facebook page, @RaiderRedsFoodPantry.

 

With thanks and appreciation,

Raider Red’s Food Pantry Team

 

#GivingTECHTuesday Update!

November 27, 2018

Today is Giving Tuesday, and as many of you may know, #GivingTuesday is a global giving movement where anyone, anywhere can make a difference!  We surpassed our $2000 goal in under 24 hours on November 1st, so we extended our goal another $1500 for the remainder of the month.  Today on #GivingTECHTuesday, we surpassed our second goal.  We made it over $3500 in the last 27 days and couldn't have done it without your help!  Thank you so much for your help in reaching our goals to help fight food insecurity.  Our students are very thankful as well.  They wanted to thank you too, so we have been collecting their messages to you all month.  You can read some of their messages in the image below.  We'll be sharing more of those messages soon.

 

Thank you for fighting hunger and food insecurity!

Goal Met in 24 hours! New goal!

November 05, 2018

We are incredibly excited to have met our goal in 24 hours!  Even though we have already hit our goal, we are not done yet.  Food insecurity is an on going battle.  Help us raise another $1500 to help feed more students at Texas Tech.

Exciting First Day!

November 01, 2018

We are a little over 8 hours into the FIRST day of our project and we are already past 50% of our goal!  As of this moment, we are at 75% of our goal!  Since the beginning of the Fall 2018 semester, we have had over 330 visits to Raider Red's Food Pantry.  With the donations so far, they can help feed close to 300 students.  Today has been AMAZING! Thank you all for your gifts to help our students facing food insecurity.  A shopping trip next week may be in order.  Stay tuned for more updates and the shopping trip!
