Students’ food drive a success

In mid-November, students from various CAHP programs ran a campus-wide food drive for Thanksgiving. They collected a total of 663 items: 555 in Omaha and 108 in Kearney.

The drive was sponsored by SUN-APTA, the Students of the University of Nebraska-American Physical Therapy Association, as a fall philanthropy project. Donations went to Heartland Hope Mission in Omaha and to Kearney Jubilee Center.

The students made it a friendly competition between the two campuses and implemented a 4:1 conversion factor based on the number of students at each campus in order to make it fair. That boosted the Kearney total to 432, but Omaha still came out on top.

Thank you to everyone who participated.
