#TSUServiceDay Overview: Innovative Ways To Donate and Reflections of the Day

The Texas Social Media Research Institute served the Tarleton Food Pantry of Tarleton State University's Day of Service on April 7th, 2016. The social media coaches and board members teamed up to raise awareness of the university food pantry through a series of Periscopes done throughout the Day of Service.

Food donations to food pantries often have a stigma that it is unwanted food that does not taste good. One of our Day of Service volunteers suggested buying two items at a time when grocery shopping, one for yourself and one for the university food pantry. This could help alleviate some of the issues people have with utilizing food pantries. Watch the video above to see how the volunteers felt about their service and their final thoughts on the Tarleton Food Pantry.
