The Third Annual Donnie Farrell Memorial Food Drive Has Begun!

Donnie Farrell made an impact on so many people during his tragically short life. The Rowan University student was attacked outside of a convenience store in 2007 and died from his injuries. The crime has still not been solved, but that hasn’t dissuaded the community and his family from honoring him for his contributions and spirit. As a founding member of Rowan’s Lacrosse team, he was passionate about the sport and bringing it to his school. Donnie was a kid who loved getting involved. Like most 19 year olds he wasn’t perfect, but he was a good person with a kind heart and a strong love for his family, college, and his sport, lacrosse. His memory continues to inspire others to do good in their communities and live life to it’s fullest. It has been 8 years since the world lost Donnie, and his impact and giving spirit is going strong.

Rowan University holds a huge annual lacrosse tournament “LAX for Donnie” in his memory. They’ve also created a scholarship in his name as well as have plans for a memorial on the campus. It doesn't stop there though!

"Helping others is the greatest way to honor this special young man and keep his memory alive."

This year will also be the third annual Donnie Farrell Memorial Food Drive on behalf of the Interfaith Food Pantry. To honor his giving spirit and support the community, his family works with the Interfaith Food Pantry and YouGiveGoods to bring much needed food and supplies to the pantry. Being that it is also #HungerActionMonth, now is a better time than ever to show your support for the Food Pantry and to show those who knew and loved Donnie that his positive, charitable spirit lives on in his community. All items purchased through the YouGiveGoods drive will be shipped directly to the Interfaith Food Pantry.
