BU student clubs organize AGAPE food drive

p>For Immediate Release:  Oct. 8, 2014

BLOOMSBURG—Three College of Business student organizations of Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania are collaborating to serve the Bloomsburg community. Throughout October and November, the American Marketing Association, the Information Technology Management (ITM) Club and BU’s APICS student chapter are holding a food drive to support AGAPE. Canned and other non-perishable foods will be collected in Sutliff Hall.

“We’ll keep collecting until we’re satisfied,” said ITM Club president Leonid Kukuyev, a senior from Brooklyn, N.Y.

The food drive will support AGAPE’s mission to reduce hunger. The AMA, ITM Club and APICS plan to further support AGAPE, as well as other Bloomsburg organizations, through on-site volunteering and offering their own organization-specific services. That includes creating a marketing plan with the AMA, receiving informational technology consulting from the ITM Club or learning more about supply chain management from APICS.

Bloomsburg University is one of 14 universities in the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education. The university, celebrating 175 years of excellence in 2014, serves approximately 10,000 students, offering comprehensive programs of study in the colleges of Education, Business, Liberal Arts and Science and Technology.
