01.7.2010

HIGH POINT, N.C., Jan. 7, 2010 ? Members of Alpha Sigma Lambda (ASL) ? the honor society for the Evening Degree Program at High Point University ? recently collected more than 300 pounds of food for the Second Harvest Food Bank.

Tara Shollenberger, manager of the Budd Family Campus, says this event marked the first philanthropy for ASL. 

“We’re not sure how many people this will feed, but the group collected 314 pounds of food,” Shollenberger says.

Shollenberger adds that many current and former students helped out with the project, including Brian Harrington, a recent graduate, who served as a liaison between HPU and the Second Harvest Food Bank. Another student, Angela Huneycutt, collected three boxes full of food from her office.
