  7. Hey everyone! I am here to introduce a new initiative that is being started here at St. Tom’s!  The Granola Bar Crusade was started in 2016 as a way to get students involved in much-needed food donations in the local community. Since then, hundreds of pounds of food have been donated to St. John's - LUM Food Pantry. During the Spring of 2017, just four people contributed around 110 pounds of oatmeal and granola bars. Our new goal is to give 1 ton of these items!! We are asking for volunteers in the residence halls to step up and be Hall Ambassadors, where you can be a collection point for the hall floor as well as spread the word of this initiative. Donations of food in the form of single-use oatmeal cups, granola bars, and cups of cereal (easily obtained by using unused meal swipes at On-the-Go) can start immediately and be brought to next Wednesday night Mass!
