A philanthropic, tradition-rich – and mysterious – campus group has made a trademark donation to one of the University of Southern Mississippi’s newer initiatives.

The Gold Leaf, a “secret society,” has given $777.77 to the Eagle’s Nest Food Pantry, a project started in 2016 by the School of Social Work to address food insecurity among needy students and staff.

The Gold Leaf Society often makes donations in that amount, or some variation that includes 7s, such as the $17,777.77 it contributed to the construction of the Gateway Centennial at the main entrance to the Hattiesburg campus to celebrate the University’s 100th anniversary in 2010.

“I am always impressed with the kindness and generosity of people and groups such as the Gold Leaf that respond to identified needs of our students,” says Dr. Tim Rehner, director of the School of Social Work. “I am also really impressed that the food pantry has become such a great vehicle through which donations can be channeled to address food insecurity on campus.”
