M: McDougald Terrace – Warm Up the Community!

  • Donate new socks, gloves, scarves, and hats for children and adults. Collection bins will be placed around campus beginning in December. These items will be taken to McDougald Terrace for distribution following the faculty and staff MLK celebration.

L: Love Our Food Pantry!

  • Team up with your department to sign up to adopt the pantry for one month in 2015. During your assigned month, your team may collect donations, serve in the community garden, and find other ways to learn about and give back to our students in need. Department sign up forms will be available before and after Friday’s celebration and luncheon – start thinking about who your team leader will be today!
