Students rally together, donate thousands to Lexington Food Pantry

While the group has accomplished a lot, the work is still ongoing. Now, they have partnered with the Chinese American Association of Lexington (CAAL) for a new campaign.

Now, CAAL has pledged to match all donations, up to $500, for a second round of baskets to the Lexington Food Pantry.
