Arcadia to host ‘Food For Thought: Let’s U-Knight to Save Lives’, part of the Gift of Life College Challenge

Arcadia University’s 1853 Communications and Donate Life are hosting “Food For Thought: Let’s U-Knight to Save Lives” on April 9 from 4:00-5:00pm on Haber Green with a rain location in the upstairs of the Commons.

The event, a culmination of a semester-long drive, intends to raise awareness about organ donation with the goal of increasing the number of registered organ donors. It will feature an information table with materials from Donate Life, a variety of snacks, and a raffle with prizes from local businesses.

There will also be a craft project to create cards with messages of hope and lawn games available to play on the green. Attendees will have access to information about Donate Life and the opportunity to register as an organ donor.

The Gift of Life College Challenge is designed to engage local college students in the process of registering new organ donors and spreading the word about the crucial need for organ and tissue donation. The challenge’s winner receives $1,000. Arcadia took second prize ($500) in 2021.
