An April 12-23 campus food drive seeking quick and convenient snacks and meals for families of children battling pediatric cancer will be underway by the Pinky Swear PACK at Minnesota State Mankato
Pinky Swear PACK, a registered student organization at Minnesota State Mankato, is an offshoot of the Pinky Swear Foundation that collects food and snacks for local children’s hospitals.
Drop locations for food donations will be in the Centennial Student Union and other areas of campus.
Items should include non-expired, non-perishable food in individually wrapped portions. Such items include mac and cheese bowls, ramen noodle bowls, granola bars, cookies, fruit snacks and fruit cups, chips and popcorn. Food also can be purchased direct from a Pinky Swear Amazon Wish List.
All food donations received go directly towards helping to stock the Pinky SwearPantry at the University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital and Children’s Minnesota Hospital. There are also several Pinky SwearPantries in children’s hospitals that help offer quick and convenient snacks/meal options for families during their stay. More information available at Pinky Swear Foundation.
