Loading food into the van
Madison, Wis. (January 6, 2020) - The Student Veterans Association, with support from Dominican Life and the Military & Veterans Services Office at Edgewood College, loaded and delivered a record-setting donation from the Swipe & Share program, just in time for the holidays.

In this the fifth semester of the program, students at Edgewood College donated more than $12,000 and nearly 8,000 pounds of shelf-stable foods to the Catholic Multicultural Center in Madison, just in time for the holidays.

The Swipe & Share donations are purchased with contributions from students who did not use the entirety of their meal plans during each semester.

The support for the Catholic Multicultural Center is a true team effort: Edgewood College Athletics lent use of the team van to transport, and Dining Services, led by Director Jon Riffle, assisted in ordering and organizing the donations of the food, which was delivered in December.
