Students Raise Nearly $30,000 Through ‘Swipe Out Hunger’ Campaign

Penn Staters helped raise nearly $30,000 this spring for the university’s Student Emergency Fund, which is a program that provides financial assistance to students in need.

Rather than trying to get rid of meal points by splurging on ice cream and coffee, students were encouraged to donate excess points on their on-campus meal plans to benefit the program throughout “Swipe Out Hunger” week.

Students from University Park and the Commonwealth Campuses collectively raised a total of $29,840, which is an increase from last year’s total of $29,502.67.

“Swipe Out Hunger” is a national nonprofit committed to ending hunger on college campuses. Nearly 435 schools across the country have teamed up with the nonprofit to bring anti-hunger programs to their campuses.
