Serving the Community

The Snack Pack Project provides 25,000 bags of healthy snacks for the Play S.A.F.E. Program. Snack packs are made by incoming Scarlet Knights during New Student Orientation.

Over 2,000 children ages 6-12 attend Play S.A.F.E., most of them food insecure. Meaning they don't receive enough nutrients to lead a healthy life.
