Canned food drive initiative was to collect food items that would be donated to a food bank and kitchen so that the homeless would have a meal over the Thanksgiving Holiday.
The Equipment Drive was part of the required program to help combat childhood obesity by collecting exercise/field game equipment and was donated to a local recreational service in the south valley so that children in low income communities could use the equipment to become more active.
Hanging of the greens is a campus activity that KONu participates in every year at UNM. We decorate UNM campus as a holiday tradition and have a small end of semester party.
Wellness Day is a UNM campus event put on by the Nutrition Club and KONu helps with. It is to promote healthy lifestyle habits and inform the public and college students how to make small changes in their habits for better quality of life.
Spring Storm is a UNM campus initiative to provide community service volunteers to local businesses or communities who want extra help providing service or cleaning up Albuquerque.
3. Tentative plans for next year
Wellness day, Hanging of the Greens and Spring storm are events KONu will participate in next year. Tentative plans have been made for volunteering in the Ronald McDonald House to serve food to low income and homeless families. The Canned Food drive will most likely be done again as it was very successful. The scholarship that we received was not given this year and will be given to the most active member in December.
