Students, faculty and staff were invited to listen to an aspirational talk by Frank McKinney’s “Survival to Thrival Tour” at the Knights Helping Knights Pantry. For every person that attended the event, a $25 donation from his foundation was made to the pantry.

McKinney, a real estate developer and author, visits homeless shelters, soup kitchens and food pantries around the country. The Survival of Thrival Tour is about awareness of the homeless and hungry but most of all it is about taking action. For more information on the Frank McKinney and his tour, visit: or
