On This Day in IUPUI History: November 21, 2013

November 21, 2013. 

On this day, the first "Jam the Jaguars Pantry" celebration occurred. That year, canned goods gathered by students, staff, and faculty went to stock the Paws Pantry, a service in the IUPUI Campus Center for IUPUI folks who might find themselves in need of food. The drive occurred in proximity to Thanksgiving. Extra canned goods went to other community partners including Christamore House, the Damien Center, and the Dayspring Center. The event continued a long-standing campus tradition of helping neighbors.
