SNC Potato Drop 2014

Video by Liz Groth — Story by Kalli Seglund

As part of SNC’s Into the Streets service event, over 40 first year students served their community through the Potato Drop. The Society of St. Andrew partnered with a Wisconsin grower to coordinate the donation of the potatoes and Schneider provided the freight to transport the potatoes to our area.

A team of upperclass students, including Kalli Seglund, helped to coordinate the distribution. The following is her story.

The Potato Drop was an experience which allowed me to realize the impact that just a few hours of community service can have.
