Students Set Politics Aside To Help People
Shared by: Brett Galaszewski
As many of us have seen firsthand, Wisconsin has been hit hard by this crisis. This has especially been the case for students, whose life has been turned upside down. Just three month ago, many college students were pursuing their degrees at places like UWM, Marquette, UW-Green Bay and UW-Madison. Fast forward to today, and they are finishing up their semesters in their living rooms via online courses.
When students were sent home for the semester, the Students for Trump chapters began looking for things to do to stay active in the public. That’s when they began working on a fundraiser. During these uncertain times, one thing is for sure: no families should be scrambling to find and afford food. For two weeks in April, the Students for Trump chapters at UW, UWM, MU, and UWGB came together to put politics to the side and focus on what’s really important right now: helping those in need. Each school chose a food pantry in their area to raise money for. These food pantries included the Hunger Task Force, Southern Harvest Food Bank of Southern Wisconsin, and Paul’s Pantry of Green Bay. Thanks to everyone’s kindhearted donations, these chapters were able to raise $600 dollars for local food pantries.
During these uneasy times, these students showed that despite our political differences, we are all capable of forgetting about that for just a moment to help out those who need it most. It says a lot about our character as a state and our ability to overcome anything. Thank you to everyone who donated to the fundraiser and thank you to the chapter members at UWM, UW, MU, and UWGB for your work to help stomp out hunger in our state!
