Student org donation drive to help homeless

Update: Interim Chancellor Connie Foster thanked campus organizers February 19 for their recent campus donation drive to help the Twin Cities homeless population. Organizers included Allan Law, a UWRF alumnus and creator of homeless outreach group Love One Another; sophomore elementary education major Natalie Stewart, vice president of the UWRF Random Acts Student Organization; and org adviser Jennifer Willis-Rivera. The drive netted 257 masks, 226 pairs of socks, 295 snack packages and 40 mylar blankets, among other items and contributions. Thank you to all who donated and helped out!

February 2, 2021 - The UWRF Random Acts Student Organization is partnering with Love One Another and Random Acts for an on-campus donation drive now through Feb. 14 to help the Twin Cities homeless population. Donation boxes are located across campus, including at the front desk in the University Center, the Admissions Office in Rodli Hall, Davee Library Circulation Desk, all the dean’s offices and the Chancellor’s Office in North Hall. Everyone is invited to donate new socks, personal protective equipment (PPE), mylar survival blankets and nutrition packs. A typical nutrition pack includes three to five single-serve non-perishable food items in zip-locked plastic bags. All donated items will be distributed to homeless residents who have suffered even greater hardship because of COVID-19. Random Acts also will match all donations up to $1,000 worth of items.

Those unable to donate items on campus may send packages to the Chancellor’s Office. Others wishing to make monetary donations can do so here. Include “UWRF” in the message area and proceeds will be directed to the UWRF project.
