Thank you so much for donating necessities that many of us take for granted for the Bare Essentials Campaign Drive that ended on Monday, Sept. 14 at noon.
All items have been delivered to the Oshkosh Area Food Pantry and St. Vincent DePaul for distribution to needy families within our community.
Last year, my back seat was STUFFED with donations. As you can see from the pictures below, my back seat was about half-full and my trunk was filled to the brim!
In addition to the items that were donated, $370 was also raised and delivered to the United Way for the Bare Essentials Campaign Fund. Once all donations have been sorted, they will see what is still needed and purchase those items with the money that was collected (I was unaware that they allowed monetary donations and will make sure to pass that information along when we partner with them again next year).
My cup runneth over with the generosity of colleagues from around our campus community. Due to your giving, many children will have new undergarments and socks to wear when they go to school.
THANK YOU again for helping to make this such a successful drive!
