The Executive Impact club has been collecting buckets from Sanford Commons in Roess Dining Hall in response to the devastation from Hurricane Maria and Harvey.
The buckets will be filled with cleaning supplies that will be used to clean houses affected by the recent record-setting hurricanes in Texas, Florida, Louisiana, South Carolina, Georgia and other affected areas. The United Methodist Committee on Relief provided the club with a list of supplies needed to fill the buckets.
The filled buckets will be dropped off at Boone United Methodist Church, where staff will assist with getting the buckets to the NC UMCOR facility, which distributes the supplies to affected areas.
“A partnership like this shows the unconventional ways Food Services partners with students to do great things within our community and nation in this case,” Cline said. “Food Services is here for students, and any time we can build relationships with other campus entities is a successful endeavor.”
The mission of the Executive Impact Club is to provide opportunities for professional growth to the community of MBA students at Appalachian State University. These experiences include networking, learning and hearing from local professionals, participating in intramural sports, and service to the community. Through these opportunities, the club promotes integrity, philanthropy, insight, networking and balance. The Executive Impact Club partners with other clubs within the Walker College of Business including: Beta Alpha Psi, Supply Chain Club, AITP, Appalachian Accountants Club, and Entrepreneurship Club.
