Missouri S&T will Participate in Nationwide Challenge to Perform 500,000 Random Acts of Kindness. S&T will join hundreds of colleges and universities performing acts of kindness on campus as part of Chartwells Higher Education’s “Delight-Ful” event.
Our students will join their peers at 300 other colleges and universities on February 17, 2022 to participate in “Delight-Ful,” a nationwide event designed to celebrate, carry out, and encourage random acts of kindness across the country. The signature event was created by Chartwells Higher Education, a recognized leader in contract foodservice management and S&T’s foodservice partner.
The Delight-Ful challenge will take place simultaneously across all Chartwells’ campuses, encouraging Chartwells’ associates, students, and school faculty and staff to collectively perform random acts of kindness. At S&T, students will be delighted by a surprise Tik-Tok inspired menu at TJ during dinner, kindness giveaways, and activities designed to encourage participants to pay it forward.
Our students have dealt with some really difficult circumstances over the last two years. We’re overjoyed to be able to give them a special, memorable, safe, and impactful experience that celebrates being back on campus while also making them feel part of a bigger movement to bring some kindness to the world.
In addition to day-of on-campus activities and events, S&T Dining will partner with C.A.S.A. (Court Appointed Special Advocates) to provide Birthday Boxes to abused and neglected youth, ages 0-20 in our local communities. We will be offering students on campus the opportunity to donate declining balance dollars towards this donation with a S&T Dining match up to $500. Chartwells has also partnered with celebrity chef Jet Tila to serve as the virtual emcee for Delight-Ful and prompt calls to action for campuses nationwide to do their own random acts of kindness.
“We strive to give students the opportunity to help, surprise, and delight one another, both inside and outside of our dining halls, so we wanted to create an event centered around random acts of kindness,” said Lisa McEuen, CEO of Chartwells Higher Education. “National Random Acts of Kindness Day was the perfect catalyst for our next signature JoyFul event, and we’ve made it our goal to bring half a million acts of kindness to the communities we serve nationwide.”
