End the silence

More than 300 members of the UD community, including students, faculty, staff and alumni, gathered on the steps of Memorial Hall and the nearby North Green on Sept. 19 to voice their concerns regarding sexual harassment and assault.

It features a UD food collection bus parked at a different campus location each day of this week to accept items donated by the campus community and transport them to the Food Bank of Delaware at the end of the day.

The bus was parked at Mentors’ Circle on Wednesday, Nov. 14, with members of the Occupational Therapy Club on hand to accept the donations.

The total on Tuesday came to 430 pounds of food donated, according to a representative of the Food Bank of Delaware, bringing the three-day total of donations to 1,639. 

Blue Hens CAN continues from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 15, with the collection bus to be parked at the south campus next to the UDairy Creamery off South College Avenue.

Members of the Food Science Club will be on hand to collect donations.
