President Joseph I. Castro
During this holiday season, there is much to be thankful for at Fresno State because of community members like you. Your support through scholarships, internships and jobs for graduates is crucial to the success of Fresno State students and our community.
I am especially grateful for the outpouring of support for our Student Cupboard, which is wrapping up its first year of fighting food insecurity on campus. Donors’ gifts of food and personal hygiene items help more than 3,330 students each month, totaling 15,720 visits in the last year. When their families are added in, over 48,000 individuals benefited.
Fresno State knows that when students don't have to worry about where their next meal will come from, they can concentrate on succeeding in the classroom, and this means success in life.
The community's abundant spirit of giving, as evidenced in 2015, will no doubt continue into the new year. For that, we are extremely grateful. Happy Holidays, and thank you!
