SETON HALL UNIVERSITY Active Rock WSOU/SOUTH ORANGE, NJ collected 640 pounds of food in its annual “Students Change Hunger” drive for the COMMUNITY FOOD BANK OF NEW JERSEY. The drive, launched on NOVEMBER 4th, beat last year's total by 300 pounds.
“It is gratifying to see how committed the students of WSOU are to helping the hungry right here in our community,” said Station Manager MOLLY MELLER. “We almost doubled last year’s donation totals and as the station expands its efforts in the years ahead, I am confident WSOU will see its donations increase annually.”
“More than 1.3 million people in NEW JERSEY require food assistance and it’s a major problem nationwide,” said News Director KATIE FATZLER. “Factor in NEW YORK CITY and there are many people in our listening area impacted by not having enough to eat.”
WSOU GM MARK MABEN said, “It was just in the fall of 2014 that a student came up with the idea for the station to conduct a food drive. In a short time, our participation in Students Change Hunger has become part of WSOU’s culture and demonstrates our commitment to serving those in need.”
