Students In Free Enterprise is a student-led nonprofit organization aimed at meeting the needs in the local and global community through sound business principles.
On April 26, ORU SIFE will partner with Liberty Church and Feed My Starving Children to pack 200,000 meals. Last year, SIFE aided Feed My Starving Children by packing 162,000 meals. This year, 180 students will go downtown and pack the meals again. Packing will continue throughout weekend. These meals are distributed by approved FMSC partners around the world.
The team claimed first place for the third time during the SIFE USA Regional Competition on April 13 in Dallas. Through a written annual report and live audiovisual presentation, the ORU team reported the results of its community outreach projects to panels of business leaders serving as judges. Outreach done by ORU this year includes a campaign to end local hunger, the reading A-Z project, a pizza fundraiser and working with churches for fall outreach, among others. The teams were evaluated based on how successful they were at using business concepts to improve the quality of life and standard of living for those in need.
