Service Project

Families have the opportunity to live out ECU’s motto Servire, ‘To Serve,’ by participating in the Spring Family Fest Service Project. We are accepting donations to the ECU Purple Pantry at our Spring Family Fest Tailgate. Purple Pantry’s mission is to decrease food insecurity among the students of East Carolina University and increase access to other personal care items. 

Attendees can bring items to the check-in table at the Spring Family Fest Tailgate. The Purple Pantry’s most needed items are breakfast items (individual cups of cereal, breakfast bars, oatmeal cups, etc.) and snack items. 

    Can’t make it but would like to contribute? You can make a donation to the Purple Pantry on their Amazon Wishlist!
