NC Campus Compact VISTAs shared success stories in their recent VISTA interim reports, including the opening of a new on-campus food pantry at Durham Tech Community College and a growing partnership between UNC-Asheville and a local alternative school. Many VISTAs supported MLK Days of Service and organized alternative breaks during this period as well.
Sally Parlier, Durham Technical Community College VISTA, led an effort to create the Durham Tech Campus Harvest (DTCH) Food Pantry. Since opening on January 22 the Food Pantry has had over 750 visits and served more than 150 individuals. They’ve also collected approximately 2,400 lbs of food and raised $1,761 in cash donations. Sally has also developed a new partnership with Jordan High School. Learn more and view a local news piece on the DTCH pantry at our VISTA VIEW Blog.
