Hunger Week

JFRC students and faculty participated in Hunger Week, throughout the week of November 17-21. This Loyola tradition dates back more than 40 years, and has made its way to Rome. This week is dedicated to a student effort to provide for the world’s most vulnerable populations. All week long, the JFRC community came together to raise money for the Jesuit Refugee Services, a nonprofit organization that provides aid to refugees all around the world. The week’s highlight, the silent auction, allowed students and administration to get creative and donate goods or services that others could bid on. At the end of the week, the JFRC community was able to donate over €400 to the Jesuit Refugee Services. ‚Äč
