‘Stater’ needs your leftovers

It’s the end of the semester, and, like every semester, many still have hundreds of dollars left on meal plans. No one wants to give money back to the university, and who could possibly use more than $10 worth of crackers?

Well, we could.

As the semester winds down, the Daily Kent Stater will be donating non-perishable foods to LoveLight, Inc., a local non-profit organization, as it gears up for its summer program. From mid-June to the beginning of August, LoveLight will provide nutritious lunches and activities for children in lower-income neighborhoods in the Kent/Brady Lake area.

Betsy Justice, doctoral student in educational psychology and part-time instructor at Kent State, established LoveLight, Inc., in 1995 to help educate disadvantaged children in Kent.

Here’s some of what LoveLight needs:

• Canned fruits and vegetables

• Crackers

• Soups

• Juice

• Peanut butter/ jelly

• Salad dressing

These and other non-perishable food items can be dropped off at the Stater newsroom located in 100 Taylor Hall.

Anyone interested in volunteering or donating money or supplies such as art materials and games to LoveLight can contact Justice at [email protected].
