NEERly Naked Mile

This event is to spread awareness about the homeless population in Boone who sometimes don't have enough to wear in the winter. During the 1 mile run around campus, runners are encouraged to "bare" it all - down to bathing suit coverage. As a registration fee to participate, runners donate a coat or two other articles of clothing and all items are donated to the Hospitality House. The 8th Annual NNM was held on October 25th, 2021, hosted by the Student Ambassadors and the Student Government Association. Our 2021 race was one of the largest in our history! Thanks to all the runners and donors, over 300 articles of clothing and $400 in donations were collected!

Canned Food Drive

The Student Ambassadors canned food drive is a university-wide food drive that helps give back to the surrounding community. All of the cans & money donated go directly to the local Hunger and Health Coalition, benefiting families in Watauga, Avery, and Ashe counties. This event needs participation from all across Appalachian State's Campus and the Boone Community! During the fall semester, look out from promotions from Ambassadors on how to get involved and donate cans!

2021 was our largest drive to date, collecting over 32,000 pounds of food! You can find Ambassadors next to the two on campus markets, on Sanford Mall, or even on a visit to your apartment complex.
