At the February and April Saint Anselm College Open Houses for Admitted Students, attendees and their families donated over 1,500 food items for low-income communities.

For the second year, the Office of Admission at Saint Anselm College conducted food drives, asking high school seniors already accepted to the college and their parents to bring a food donation to the Open Houses.

Donated goods were dropped off at Registration and delivered to Waypoint, the oldest children’s charitable organization in New Hampshire. Waypoint services over 10,000 people a year.

“Our Open House Food Drive is the perfect opportunity for future Anselmians and their families to be immersed into our community,” says Michael Iorio ’07, director of Admission Recruitment. “It’s the first of many actions to follow that proves Anselmians are a part of something so much bigger than themselves or this Hilltop campus. I am truly humbled to see our admitted students and their families participate in this tradition.”
