Again this year, it’s easy to donate food and personal hygiene items for the Spartan Open Pantry. The Presbyterian Church of the Covenant and the College Hill Neighborhood Association are co-sponsoring a drop-off food drive for the pantry on Saturday mornings in December. Volunteers will be accepting donations Saturday December 11 and December 18 from 10 a.m. to noon in the church parking lot on Mendenhall Street.
The pantry serves university students and staff in need of assistance. Especially needed right now are:
- breakfast cereals;
- chick peas;
- cooking oil;
- hygiene and toiletry items (small sizes of toothpaste, toothbrushes, mouthwash, lotions, shampoos, conditioners, deodorants for men and women; feminine hygiene products; and razors and shaving products for men and women);
- snacks like chips, cookies and crackers;
- and toilet paper and paper towels.
Financial donations are also welcome. Checks can be made out to the Spartan Open Pantry; online donations can be made here.
The pantry is operated by the Wesley-Luther Campus Ministry and the UNCG Division of Student Affairs. For more information, click here for the Spartan Open Pantry website.
