Ohio University StudentCPT Provides Athens Food Pantry with 600 Canned Goods

Ohio U Gobble Grams 02

November 2015 – The CPT believes that community service is a fundamental element of ethical leadership. To support this initiative, each StudentCPT chapter completes at least one community service event per year, and the CPT commends the Ohio University StudentCPT for its creative and festive craft that raised money to help others in their community.

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, chapter members made and sold “gobble grams” to students and faculty for $3 each. The proceeds from the gobble grams helped purchase over 600 canned goods for the Athens Food Pantry.

The Ohio University StudentCPT also passed along the instructions for this activity, to support other chapters who would like to conduct similar events in the future. The CPT thanks these students for Being a Difference in their community.

The CPT also wants to hear from you! If your chapter would like to share its best practices, please CLICK HERE submit an activity report.
