Hawks for Hunger: Local Families Receive a Holiday Meal Thanks to Alumni, Student Support

Tuesday, December 16, 2014

University Advancement partnered with several campus and community organizations to supply a holiday feast for 380 Wilmington families.

As part the “Hawks for Hunger” initiative, for every alumni or student who made their first gift to UNCW during November, UNCW Campus Dining, Feast Down East and the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina donated a holiday meal to a local family in need.

The meals, which included turkeys and vegetables plus recipes, were distributed at Freedom's Way Ministries on Dawson Street on Dec. 16.
