beta gamma sigma donationThe Beta Gamma Sigma honor society at Lander University recently  conducted a successful food drive benefitting the Bear Necessities food pantry.  Beta Gamma Sigma is an international business honor society in business schools that are accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. For the fundraiser, student chapter members placed collection containers at strategic locations across campus and were responsible for promoting the food drive, along with collecting and distributing the food. Bear Necessities is a University-operated food pantry that addresses food insecurity among Lander students.
