Thanks for making Writers Harvest a success!

Students, faculty, staff and community residents donated 521 non-perishable food items (that’s 419 pounds!) and enough cash to purchase an additional 1,500  individual meals during this year’s Writers Harvest here at Purdue University.  All proceeds benefit Food Finders, an organization that distributes three million pounds of food and supplies to 175 non-profit agencies in 18 Indiana counties, reaching thousands of hungry Hoosiers and their families every year. Thank you to poets Deena Linett and Mary Leader and fiction writers Patricia Henley and Porter Shreve for providing the entertainment. And thank you to all who donated to this great cause. The quantity and quality of this year’s donations were truly inspiring.
