William Woods University faculty and staff donated more than 500 pounds of food to SERVE, a nonprofit social service agency in Fulton, during the university’s annual holiday luncheon at WWU.

It has been a holiday tradition for several years for WWU employees to donate non-perishable food to needy families, but according to Steve Mallinckrodt, executive director of SERVE, this year’s drive was especially “impressive.” He said the donation was wonderful: “It makes a huge difference in our ability to feed families.”

SERVE Inc. helps achieve the unmet needs of Callaway County. Services include a food pantry, a transportation system, senior volunteer placement, a thrift store, youth mentoring programs and GED classes for individuals in the county.
