Worcester, Mass. – Several Clark University student-athletes recently hosted a fundraiser that benefited Jeremiah’s Inn, a social model residential recovery program for men located near the University campus. The event, which was held in Red Square on campus, was part of their Management 100 class.
Mia Cattaneo (volleyball), Eli Cobb (lacrosse), Darius Jagminas (lacrosse) and Connor Morris (lacrosse) led the group that allowed fellow students to throw pies at each other, faculty members and athletic staff if they donated.
"I'm extremely proud of these individuals," said Director of Athletics And Recreation, Trish Cronin. "These type of service endeavors fall exactly in line with the mission of the University and we as a Department will continue to do them."
Jeremiah’s Inn has three components – residential, educational and emergency food. It provides, through its residential program, a Transitional Social Model with a key focus of addressing issues related to substance abuse as well as emergency shelter beds for the community, with related support services.
It also provides and Emergency Nutrition Center with additional support services and produces educational opportunities and materials to educate the general public about issues related to hunger and homelessness.
All money raised during the fundraiser was donated to Jeremiah’s to allow residents purchase toiletries and other sundries.
