Last week, the pantry received two very generous donations from Management Professionals Incorporated (MPI) through its CEO, Mr. Alvin Midgett, COO, Mr. Terrell Midgett, Mr. John Debnam, and other members of his team. Mr. Midgett reminisced about his time in college and his struggle as a college student with little or no money. The company’s donation included 800 pounds of assorted items, including food, toiletries, and stationaries.

In another development, Project Pivot, representatives Mr. Nick Robertson and Mr. Clarence Winn also visited the campus to support the pantry. The community outreach representatives confirmed their commitment to helping sustain the pantry.
