Fat Tuesday Chocolate Fountain

The Chocolate Fountain is a pre-lenten celebration for students and staff coordinated by Campus Ministries' Center for Service & Social Justice and The Fresh Food Company on Fat Tuesday, the day before Ash Wednesday.

In 2017, we will be asking The University community to "fill a bag" with donations throughout Lent to give to people in need our area. Donations can be anything useful to others, such as non-perishable food, clothing in good conditions, housewares, etc.  The options are endless (and they don't have to fit in the confines of the bag!)

Tips on How to Pay-it-Forward during Lent

Here are a few simple ways to reap the silent rewards of selfless giving.

  1. Volunteer for a non-profit organization

  2. Leave a friendly note on someone’s Facebook wall.

  3. In the winter clean the snow off your car and the one next to you.

  4. Fold someone’s laundry left in the dryer in your residence hall or apartment

  5. If you have something nice to say, say it.

  6. At a drive-thru, pay for the order of the car behind you.

  7. Guest swipe someone without a meal plan.

  8. Leave a large tip on a small bill.

  9. Make a donation. Most people have things they no longer use or need, give it away to a local charity by bringing it to DeNaples 205B!

  10. Invite someone sitting alone to eat with you in the cafeteria
