Students Raise $14,000 for Food Pantry

At the end of each semester, members of SALT encourage their classmates to donate to the Hilltop Neighborhood Food Pantry in Valparaiso any meal plan money they must "use or lose." At the conclusion of the fall 2008 semester, this amount totaled an amazing $14,000! That's a lot of food for Valparaiso's needy families. Thanks to all who contributed!

SALT is the Spirit-led social justice ministry of the Chapel of the Resurrection at Valparaiso University in which students in community seek to embody the Christian call to be the "salt of the earth" (Matt. 5:13). SALT helps students develop a passion and practice of Christian social action. SALTers draw upon God’s love for people to cultivate the skills of community organizing, awareness raising, and fund development.
