BHSU drums up support for Spearfish Food Pantry

 
Thanks to the generosity of area businesses and community members, Black Hills State University delivered more than $700 to the    Spearfish Community Food Pantry recently. Donations for the cause were collected during BHSU Night at Downtown Friday Nights Sept. 9, when the Beeline (BHSU Drumline) performed, and throughout the past few weeks as students returned to campus. Area      residents and businesses were invited to wear bright green BHSU T-shirts to welcome students and their families back to campus, and    in exchange for the shirts, BHSU collected donations. "It makes such a memorable impact to the students and their families as they arrive in Spearfish to see the support and pride our community has in BHSU," said, Corinne Hansen, director of University and Community Relations.  "It's a mutual feeling, and we're glad to do our part by working together to raise funds for the Spearfish Food Pantry.
