Hawks Food Market

The holiday season and the end of 2013 are quickly approaching. This year has been filled with joys and challenges. While the media portrays the holidays as times of celebration and merriment, many families in our community will be struggling to provide food, clothing and shelter.  In order to demonstrate our Silverhawk heart by supporting our families, we are teaming up with the Lincoln Food Bank to sponsor our first Hawks Food Market. Members of the LSW Service Learning Club will be assisting with the market set-up. Seniors in need of GOPO community service credit may also assist in tearing down the market area as long as they begin their volunteer time after 2:03pm.

This event will take place on Tuesday, November 12th from 2:00-3:30pm in the A118 forum. Students will be able to obtain items such as macaroni and cheese, canned meat and other staples that will provide food for themselves and their families. There is no cost and there are no income restrictions.  Please advise your students about this opportunity. This is also a great teaching tool regarding the importance of compassion, dignity and respect as we interact with each other every day.
