Irwin Library Trick or Treat Event 10/31
On Friday, October 31st Butler students and their
younger siblings are invited to participate in face painting and or
to select a Halloween-themed mask from 3:30PM - 5:30PM at Irwin
Library. This event is a part of a campus wide trick-or-treat event
for Family Weekend. We are looking to have two face painters and
three students to pass out candy. The volunteers would need to
arrive at 3:15PM to help set-up and are free to leave after
5:45PM. If volunteers have any further questions, they can contact
Akeira Jennings at email@example.com or her

Oxfam Hunger Banquet 11/14
This year, the Volunteer Center will be hosting our second
annual Oxfam American Hunger Banquet. Nearly 870 million people
suffer from chronic hunger in America and more than 2.5 billion
people live in poverty. This event will randomly divide students
into different "social classes": lower, middle, and upper
class. Students will then be given a meal according to
their respective class and engage in discussion about the effects
of hunger and poverty in America, specifically in
Indianapolis. The event will be held in the
Johnson Room of Robertson Hall on Friday, November
14th from 5:00 PM- 6:30 PM. There is
no charge for the event; however, we want to acknowledge that
students will ONLY receive the meal designated to their respective
social class. Space is limited for the first 100
students, so please RSVP today by filling out the
form. We hope to see you there!
