Alumna Maggie Hillman knows what it’s like to have her wish come true and the satisfaction of having that wish benefit others.

Hillman’s dream: that students and families struggling during the holiday season not have to worry about where their next meal was coming from. The Capital One #WishForOthers campaign listened to her plea and donated the equivalent of 5 million meals to Feeding America.

The former Rams volleyball player, who graduated in 2014, saw her dream become reality through the Rachael Ray Show’s 9MillionMeals campaign. That effort aimed to bring in enough money or donated food to feed nine million people during the holiday season.

Hillman’s act of kindness was featured on the Rachael Ray Show.
