SETON HALL UNIVERSITY Rock WSOU (89.5 PIRATE RADIO)/SOUTH ORANGE, NJ has teamed up with the COMMUNITY FOOD BANK OF NEW JERSEY to participate in this year’s “Students Change Hunger” program. Staff members from WSOU brought in nearly 350 pounds of food for those in need this holiday season.
The second annual food drive kicked off on COLLEGE RADIO DAY, which WSOU and other college radio stations around the country celebrated on OCT. 2nd. WSOU’s donation of nearly 350 pounds of food was brought to the COMMUNITY FOOD BANK OF NEW JERSEY Headquarters in HILLSIDE, NJ on NOV. 20th.
“It was great to see how much food the staff members at WSOU were able to collect in a little over a month,” Station Manager ERICA SZCZEPANIAK said. “We nearly doubled our donation totals from last year, and we hope to keep increasing our donations to really give back to the community.”
WSOU plans to continue to participate in the “Students Change Hunger Program” with their annual College Radio Day Food Drive in years to come. “This started as a student-led effort and it has been inspiring to see that the students of WSOU and SETON HALL rally to address a real community need,” GM MARK MABEN said. “I am proud that helping the hungry in NEW JERSEY has quickly become a valued station tradition.”
