The Department of English at Waynesburg University will host “Pass the Biscuits” at the First Presbyterian Church of Waynesburg Wednesday, Feb. 26, from 7:30 to 9 p.m., to raise money for the Corner Cupboard Food Bank in Waynesburg.
"Pass the Biscuits" is a response by Dr. Bob Randolph, writer in residence at Waynesburg University, and the Department of English at Waynesburg University to the Day of Service planned in honor of Waynesburg University President Douglas G. Lee and his upcoming inauguration.
The event, held a few days before the Day of Service, will showcase the strengths of the Department of English as faculty members will read poetry and essays. Rev. Carolyn Poteet, director of faith and mission at Waynesburg University, will pray at the event and students will perform music.
Attendance is encouraged for students, faculty, staff and members of the Waynesburg community. Admission is free and a collection will be taken to support the Corner Cupboard’s work. The Waynesburg Giant Eagle will match the amount raised at the benefit up to $500.
"It is wonderful to me that people are willing to share their strengths, in this case writing, music and prayer, to come together and help others who need it,” Randolph said. “That's a joyful thing; it has been, and still remains, the spirit of Waynesburg University. It should be a great night."
The First Presbyterian Church of Waynesburg is located in walking distance of campus at 169 W. College St., Waynesburg, Pa.
