Christmas Hamper Donations
Christmas Hamper 2012
This year the Campus Food Bank expects to give out about 70 Christmas hampers and we are seeking assistance in filling them. All non-perishable donations are greatly appreciated, but if your family or department would like to donate a full hamper the items required for an average size family are given below.
Anne Sinnott will be coordinating this effort. We ask that you contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org by November 24, 2012, to advise if you will be donating a hamper so that we can plan accordingly. Donations can be dropped off on December 10. We will notify you by email of the hours on that day that the food can be delivered. You will also be able to arrange a pick-up for the same day if drop off is not possible. Thank you for your support, and Merry Christmas!
