SRU ‘LIGHT UP NIGHT’ TO FOCUS ON WORLD HUNGER

            SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. – Slippery Rock University’s Association of Residence Hall Students will sponsor its 19th annual “Light Up Night” signaling the traditional opening of the holiday season by joining in with the annual “Empty Bowls” lunch and dinner in focusing on world hunger.

The event, set for 6:30 p.m. Nov. 22 in the courtyard of North Hall, is being held following the conclusion of the Empty Bowls dinner which serves soup and bread from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 5 to 6:30 p.m. in the University Union. Empty Bowls, a project of SRU’s Institute for Community, Service-Learning and Nonprofit Leadership, focuses local attention on national and world hunger. Those participating in “Light Up Night” are asked to bring a non-perishable food item for donation to the Feed My Sheep Food Cupboard.

           The North Hall festivities include a presentation from the Slippery Rock High School Choir and remarks by SRU administrators. Cookies and hot chocolate will be provided.
