Sometimes we can't help but play test new library toys. We think patrons young and old will love checking out these new building planks. They seem so simple but are somehow quite addictive. #KEVAcolorpops #playislearning MindWare

Hesston College collecting funds for hunger relief effort

Hesston College is collecting funds to package meals to be sent to the Horn of Africa, where thousands upon thousands are starving. We’ve placed a donation jar at the library, where you can drop off loose change and dollar bills to support this effort!

According to a Hesston College press release, the Hesston College community will participate in the first State Wide Packaging Event (SWIPE) for hunger with Numana by packaging meals and raising money to fund the project Oct. 1.

Numana is an international hunger relief organization based in El Dorado, Kan., that facilitates volunteer food-packaging events throughout the country and sends the meals world-wide to areas where famine and hunger are greatest.

The SWIPE initiative will take place at colleges and universities across Kansas during October. More than 500,000 meals will be packaged throughout the month.

Each meal, which feeds six people, costs 30 cents to prepare and send. Hesston College volunteers are working to raise about $9,000 to pay for the meals they will package. A donation of $65 buys a box of 216 meals.

Hesston College has pledged to use 400 student, faculty, staff and community volunteers to package 50,000 meals. The meals consist of rice, soy protein, freeze-dried pinto beans and 21 vitamins and minerals, which are measured into bags, sealed, boxed and prepared for shipment. The meals packaged at Hesston on Oct. 1 will be sent to the horn of Africa to be distributed to those experiencing starvation.
