Merrimack College Helps Pack 15K Lunches for Local Food Bank

Merrimack College recently partnered with the Center for the Study of Jewish-Christian-Muslim Relations and Outreach Inc. to pack 15,000 meals for the Merrimack Valley Food Bank. This is the fourth year that volunteers gathered together to pack meals in assembly lines which gave them the opportunity to “meet people of other faith traditions while engaging in dialogue and reflection-making the day even more meaningful.”

Fr. Raymond Dlugos, vice president for missions and ministry at the university, noted that the event “allows the wider community to appreciate the culture of care, concern, and respect for the dignity of others that is a hallmark of our campus. And it demonstrates that this culture not only exists in a few individuals who go out and serve, but it is actually a part of the air we breathe here on this campus.”
