    SWU Charleston’s Student Services and Enrollment Department held a food drive benefitting the Lowcountry Food Bank. 

    Many children are fed through the school breakfast and lunch programs during the school year and go hungry during the summer months. A competition was held the months of June and July to see which class/cohort donated the most non-perishable food items.  Enrollment Services waived the application fee for new students made a donation. The winning cohort (pictured here) was CHMBA 0058. They were recognized with a pizza party. The cohort donated 459 of the 702 items donated. In addition to the food donation from the students in Charleston, an outside anonymous donor contributed another $305 worth of items in support of the local campaign.
