Northwestern State University

Dozens of Northwestern State University students are boarding buses Friday destined to lend a hand to the Robeline Food Pantry as part of a pact to do one good thing each week.

NSU is partnering with the 1 of 7 concept. The Washington D.C. nonprofit organization was founded by NSU alumnus Kip Patrick.

It encourages people to do one service activity each week and make it a lifestyle choice.
