Students, faculty, and staff of the Penn State Smeal College of Business Executive MBA Program participated in a food and clothing drive on Dec. 16 to benefit We Feed the Homeless Philadelphia.

The EMBA community collected enough food and clothing to fill two SUVs and an extended 9-passenger van. According to Craig K. Stroman, founder and chief executive officer of We Feed the Homeless Philly, the food collected will provide meals for more than 275 homeless people weekly for three months.

"We have no overhead and sometimes the money gets tight and we try to solicit donations from the public to further our cause to feed the homeless and hungry," Stroman wrote in an email message. "The monetary and food donations were right on time because, as an organization, we are looking at our checkbook and savings wondering where the next donation or grant is coming from."

We Feed the Homeless Philadelphia is a nonprofit organization with no employees that is run entirely by volunteers. The organization seeks to provide meals to as many homeless people in Philadelphia as its finances will allow, with the ultimate goal of eradicating homelessness.
