The Odum Institute is dedicated to serving our community at UNC-Chapel Hill and beyond. For many years, we have supported students and researchers with the goal of helping them do better science so, together, we can build a better world.
We see a different need today in the COVID-19 pandemic. This situation has affected us all and, as is often the case, has hit the most vulnerable populations of our community the hardest. As a staff, we are lucky enough to continue working when so many others are unable to do so.
Therefore, we have chosen to collect funds to support TABLE, a local organization dedicated to providing students in need at Chapel Hill-Carrboro and Orange County schools with nutritious meals. This need is even more pressing now that students at risk for hunger are faced with the sudden, indefinite closure of schools. We hope you will consider giving today so we can work together to help ease this unexpected burden on kids and families in our area.
