More Community Service Programs
Every November in the spirit of the Thanksgiving season, OSLA hosts the annual Hunger Banquet. This event is meant to challenge students to think about the effects of hunger and poverty around the world. After the banquet, a discussion is held and students are able to learn ways in which they can take action to help fight hunger in their local community. The Hunger Banquet will be held on November 19, 2013.
MAKING STRIDES AGAINST BREAST CANCER
Every October Hofstra participates in the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk at Jones Beach. Many different teams represent Hofstra at the walk, including an OSLA team for students and staff who are not affiliated with any other Hofstra organizations participating in the walk. In 2012, 275 members of the Hofstra community attended the walk and raised over $8,600 for the American Cancer Society to help fight breast cancer. Join us on October 20 2013!
WALKINN TO FIGHT HUNGER
The WalkINN to Fight Hunger is an annual walk held at Hofstra University to raise awareness and money for The Mary Brennan Inn, a soup kitchen in Hempstead, NY that is a part of the Interfaith Nutrition Network’s (INN) system of soup kitchens and homeless shelters all throughout Long Island. This year’s walk will be on Saturday, April 5, 2014. The walk is open to the outside community as well as the Hofstra community.
