Take part in the Hungry Husky Hustle


Hungry Husky Hustle  
Wednesday, April 3, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Student Services Center Lobby

In honor of March Madness, the Bloomsburg campus is having its own bracket challenge – but jumping directly to the Final Four.  

On Wednesday, April 3, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Student Services Center Lobby, Bloomsburg will host the “Hungry Husky Hustle” to benefit the Bloomsburg Food Cupboard and the Hungry Huskies program. This program provides fresh food choices and pantry items for all Bloomsburg Campus students who find themselves in need of food assistance.

Four teams will compete for the Hungry Husky Hustle trophy: Management and Administration, Faculty, Staff, and Students. All members of the Bloomsburg campus community may bring non-perishable items to the lobby of the Warren Student Services Building and donate them to one of the four teams. The items needed and the point value for each item are shown below. Each monetary donation will count as face value and be added to the points earned for the food donations.  

At 1 p.m., donations will be tallied and a winner will be declared. (The faculty won the last Hustle held in 2019.) Questions should be directed to Dr. Julie Kontos at jkontos@commonwealthu.edu.
