Student TAPPI members are dedicated to giving back! On November 9, students worked at the Interfaith Food Shuttle of Raleigh’s teaching farm. The farm is a small scale organic farm. Produce from the farm is sold to local restaurants and at the Farm Stand, and is given to families in need. TAPPI volunteers had a variety of jobs: working in the field harvesting crops, washing planters for re-use, and organizing the greenhouse.
Freshman through 5th year seniors participated and welcomed the opportunnity to give back, and have a break from their rigorous study schedule.
“It was a fun and rewarding opportunity to work together as a group and help our community,” said TAPPI Service Chair Joe McDonald.
Watch for our TAPPI chapter in action next semester as they particpate in Service Raleigh, a 15 year program started by Park Scholars and NC State Student Government. We truly enjoy this event, as we also host our finalists for our Paper Super Scholars Full Scholarship Program.
