Orientation Students Join Rutgers Against Hunger To Serve New Brunswick

A highlight of this summer’s New Student Orientation program was The Snack Pack Service Project. Through The Snack Pack Service Project new students at Rutgers students put together over 25,000 snack packs for children of New Brunswick, NJ. The project was helped teach our newest students that Rutgers and the New Brunswick community are forever linked and that service to others is an important part of being a Scarlet Knight.

For more information about the Snack Pack Service Project or to find out how you can help combat hunger in New Brunswick, visit rah.rutgers.edu.

We would also like to thank our generous sponsors:
