The Pendulum - Philanthropy encouraged, needed among students

The Pendulum - Philanthropy encouraged, needed among students: "A weekday walk through Moseley Center is interrupted by students at tables asking for money in exchange for cupcakes, bracelets or even just a 'thank you.' A weekend morning job is disrupted by the sight of dozens of students packaging meals for the underprivileged. Or an entire 24-hour span in spent in Alumni Gym, celebrating the lives of children.

All of these are examples of philanthropy at Elon University, or the giving of money and material goods, according to Mary Morrison, director of the Kernoodle Center for Service Learning and Community Engagement. Philanthropy is one of the practices the university is committed to fostering in its students as part of the Elon Commitment."
