AUS students volunteer in Food for the Needy campaign
American University of Sharjah student volunteers collected monetary and food donations from fellow students and AUS community members and purchased commodities such as rice, tea and sugar to fill over 500 bags that were then distributed to the needy. Thirty-one student volunteers visited Sharjah Charity International to distribute the food packets.
This was part of the annual Food for the Needy campaign recently held by AUS Community Services' program as part of its efforts to help the community.
"Through this initiative, we aspire to instill in our students the value of giving and sharing with the less privileged members of the society," said Dr. Moza Al Shehhi, Dean of Students. "We wish to extend our appreciation to the AUS community for generously contributing to this humanitarian effort. Special thanks to our student volunteers for actively supporting this initiative, from fund raising to the distribution of food to needy families under the care of Sharjah International Charity," she added.
