#HashtagLunchbag

Story written by: Erin Peterson 10/2/17
The Student Education Association (SEA) at Governors State University (GSU) is organizing a community service event, #HashtagLunchbag, on Tuesday, October 24, 2017 from 3-5pm in the G Atrium/Lobby.  This event is sponsored by an Illinois Education Association grant.  Not only is this a local event, but it is also a nationwide event.  #HashtagLunchbag is a humanity service movement dedicated to empowering and inspiring people by showing the benefits of paying it forward.  We will be creating bagged lunches, complete with sandwiches and snacks.  Lunches will be delivered to local homeless and domestic violence shelters.  Being involved with this event is a great community outreach experience for all students, staff, and community members.  All are welcome to volunteer.  Visit the website at: http://www.hashtaglunchbag.org
