Kinesiology faculty and staff volunteer at Second Harvest Heartland
School of Kinesiology faculty and staff celebrated the end of the fall semester with an afternoon of volunteering at Second Harvest Heartland, creating "protein packs"—boxes of sorted, frozen meats that will be distributed to local food shelves, soup kitchens, homeless shelters, senior community centers and children's after school programs. The School of Kinesiology group proudly packed 17,000 pounds of protein!
