The Catholic University of Korea Holds 「Sharing the Rice of Love」 Event to Spread Warm Hearts to the WorldAuthor : 관리자Date : 2020.11.17Hit : 92
Our university held the 「Sharing the Rice of Love」 event in Bucheon, Gyeonggi Province for three days from the 10th.
President Fr. Luke Jong-chul Won Ed.D and faculty members participated in the event led by the students of our university’s "Caritas Corps." Groceries such as rice and sweet potatoes and disinfectant supplies such as masks and hand sanitizers were delivered to the underprivileged, low-income households, and elderly living alone in Bucheon, Gyeonggi-do.
“I was deeply concerned about the poor financial condition met with fewer donations due to the sluggish local economy brought on by COVID-19. This all came when already the number of households in need of help has been on the rise every year,” said a social worker of the Gogang Welfare Center in Bucheon, where the 「Sharing the Rice of Love」 event was held. He also shared his deep appreciation for the Catholic University's volunteer activity.
Starting with "Sharing the Briquettes of Love" in 2016, our university has been engaging in volunteering and sharing activities for the underprivileged of the local community every winter.
