Seeking Donations for Winter Wonder
Author: Pamela Bock
Posted: October 31, 2018

The Winter Wonder program, coordinated through the Resource Center for Students with Children, provides crucial support to our PSU students with children, many of whom struggle to make ends meet during the holiday season.

The Resource Center for Students with Children finds the need to assist students this winter is particularly great and we do want to support as many student families as possible.

In this effort, we will not be matching individual student families with donors.  Rather, we are asking for groups to donate gift cards, food, and toys, and we will distribute to student families in early December.  Our hope is that this will streamline the process, create a more equitable program and provide an opportunity for every family in need to receive assistance!

Please consider a donation of any size! Gift Ideas include cash donations, gift cards to Walmart, Target. Fred Meyers, or Safeway.  Nutritional nonperishable food items, cold weather clothing such as hats, scarves or boots, and toys or children’s books. Or you can donate online at: http://tinyurl.com/WWGiveRCSC 

If your department, student group, club, alumni group, business, or community organization is interested in donating this season, please bring donations to the RCSC (SMSU 462) or contact 503-725-9878 or sswc@pdx.edu  to schedule an on-campus pickup. Deadline for donations is December 4th.  

We hope you will join us in support of the Winder Wonder Program!
