FRES Service Mechanics Organize for City-wide Food Drive

In late 2019, a group of FRES service mechanics set up non-perishable food donation bins in college houses and buildings across Penn’s campus as part of WMMR’s Camp Out For Hunger campaign. Over a two week period from November 15-December 4, the volunteers worked with building managers and college house Deans to coordinate the donations, eventually collecting over 323 lbs. of food to donate to Philabundance. This was the first year that FRES and Penn participated in the drive, which in total collected 2.6 million lbs. of food.
