The Tusculum College Staff Council completed a service project in June, delivering more than 400 cans of food to the Daily Bread in Morristown.
The staff of Tusculum College completed the food drive in June and delivered the items personally to the organization.
The Daily Bread is an organization in the Morristown downtown area. It was started by Hobe Williams, who is now 86, to feed the hungry. He started out as a service for the homeless, now he feeds anyone in need.
According to Audrey Brackens, projects and events chairman for the Tusculum College Staff Council, Williams relies solely on donations to operate, he gets no federal funding. Brackens and her committee organized the food drive project for Tusculum College.
“This was an opportunity for the staff of Tusculum College to come together in service and really make an impact,” said Michelle Arbogast, president of the Staff Council. “We were overwhelmed with the participation and the success of the project was the result of so many people participating.”
The mission of the Tusculum College Staff Council is to improve communications across the college campuses and build morale for all employees of Tusculum College. The council strives to enhance the overall quality of work life for the Tusculum College staff and increase employee engagement in the larger college community by providing educational development and social opportunities for staff employees.
