New Orleans Meetings Raise $10,000 for Second Harvest

We are proud to announce that the Joint Mathematics Meetings raised $10,000 for Second Harvest in New Orleans. These funds were used for the Second Harvest Food Bank BackPack Program. The BackPack program provides food for children, who would otherwise go hungry, by issuing them a backpack filled with food to take home for the weekend and out-of-school times. BackPacks are stocked with nutritious, child-friendly food. We are pleased that we could help Second Harvest by making this donation. Thank you to everyone who bought a tee-shirt, a raffle ticket or gave a donation.
