UNITED NATIONS ACADEMIC IMPACT AND MCN PROUDLY PRESENT ALICE ELIZABETH SHELLY, A MILLENNIUM FELLOW FOR THE CLASS OF 2020.
Baylor University | Texas, United States | Advancing SDG 1 & UNAI 1
" I am thrilled to have the opportunity to be included in the Millennium Fellowship! It will give me and my peers an opportunity to address economic disparity within our community of Waco. The COVID-19 crisis year has only increased economic instability. I hope that we can use these unfortunate circumstances to build one another up. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Serving Impoverished Communities (SIC)
This is a project that will aim to connect the Baylor campus with citizens in Waco living in poverty while helping local small businesses. Fellows will partner with campus wide events and invite businesses to sell food/goods while donating a profit to our cause. The money raised will go towards projects such as food donations, a Thanksgiving meal, and gift giving during the holiday season. The goal is to invite at least a dozen small businesses and support them with a customer base of the Baylor student body. The fellows will also collect enough perishable food (measuring in gallons) to meet the zero hunger SDG. There will be 3 main events to reach 1500 people with the money we raise: campus wide food drive, Thanksgiving donations and free meal, holiday season toy drive. Fellows will also create signs and banners to be displayed across campus to make students aware of poverty statistics at Baylor.
