Raising funds and awareness with Panda Express

If you’re interested in helping CSU’s chapter of Engineers Without Borders while enjoying some tasty food, stop by the Lory Student Center food court Thursday.

Panda Express has partnered with Engineers Without Borders to help raise funds for the installation of a $30,000 transmission line for a new well in El Salvador.

In order to make up the project’s estimated cost, Panda Express will donate 20 percent of each purchase when customers present a flyer printed from the event’s Today@Colorado State report at

“The money raised will be applied toward the construction costs associated with implementing the next phase of our project,” said Adam Byrne, the chapter president, in the report.

“This phase of the project requires a great deal of time and money, and we are hoping to improve awareness of the work our organization is doing to increase student involvement and to perhaps reach out to potential donor,” Byrne said.

“Can” you save on your citations? Yes!

Do you have a few too many campus parking tickets and some extra cans of food sitting in the back of your pantry? Well, now through May 11, CSU Parking Services is offering to reduce parking fines by $3 for every donation of a non-perishable food item.

Located at the Lake Street garage, and open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., the Parking Services Office will accept one donation per citation, according to the events calendar on the university website.

To receive the discount, all donations must be given to Parking Services at the time you pay for the citation.

Donations will go to the Food Bank of Larimer County.
