MSU Greenline Accepts 2013 Bea and Roy Mott Award

On Friday, November 15, MSU Greenline accepted the 2013 Bea and Roy Mott Award at the MSU Student Food Bank’s 20th Anniversary Reception. MSU Greenline joins a select group of recipients as part of the inaugural class for the newly created award. Recipients were recognized for their outstanding contributions and consistent service to the Food Bank. Those receiving the award include individuals such as Graduate School Dean Karen Klomparens and Senior Associate Vice President for Student Affairs and Services Dr. Denise B. Maybank, as well as organizations like Student Health Services, Associated Students of Michigan State University and the Office of the Provost.

“It’s a huge honor for us to receive this award,” said MSU Greenline Lead Student Coordinator Danielle Matlick. Matlick said, “We strive to follow the example set by Bea Mott. She set the tone for MSU when it comes to philanthropy, and to be recognized in her name for our contributions must be a sign that we’re on the right track.”

MSU Greenline has been instrumental in helping the Food Bank for the last ten years. Collectively, the organization makes up one of the largest groups of advocates for the Food Bank. Greenline callers also offer every donor the opportunity to make a gift to the MSU Student Food Bank. A large number of Greenliners also volunteer on the Food Bank’s distribution nights.

The MSU Student Food Bank was founded in 1993 and is the first ever food bank run by students to service their own student body. More than 4,700 students and their families are served every year, and they distribute more than 50,100 pounds of food. All of their operations are funded and supported by donations from community organizations and individuals.
