Dare to Care

May 4, 2015 – Throughout March 2015, the East End Crossing project team held a “Madness Food Drive” to collect nonperishable items for Dare to Care, which is the leading nonprofit social service agency addressing hunger needs in Kentuckiana.

Collection boxes were placed in project offices and trailers and represented popular basketball teams in Kentucky and Indiana. A project team member even created an additional box for Illinois University.

The project team collected 313 food items to help the Dare to Care Food bank feed the hungry in the Kentuckiana area. University of Louisville fans won the drive, collecting 125 food items.

The “Madness Food Drive” was held in part of the Sustainability Action Plan of the East End Crossing, which encourages project team members to help with social, economic and environmental issues in Kentuckiana.
