Retriever Essentials Share-A-Thon

Please Donate Non Perishable Food

Thursday, July 22, 2021
9:30 AM – 11:00 AM
Lot 22 - Corner of HIlltop Circle and Hilltop Road
Host:  The Wisdom Institute

A new academic year is on the horizon, and UMBC students will be back on the campus.  Join us for a drive-in “Share-a-Thon,” to collect healthy, non-perishable foods, toiletries, and select cold-weather gear [hats, gloves, scarves] for students facing financial or housing challenges.  Cash donations [in person or online] are also welcome.  We’ll meet and collect donations at Parking Lot 22 (off Wilkens Avenue and Hilltop Road near the PAHB) on campus. 

To donate food, toiletries or fund them remotely, you can place an Amazon Wish List order on their website.   Lists of needed items to donate in person can also be identified from the food and toiletries listings in their website, Retriever Essentials

As communication about events such as this slowly ramp up, please share widely with your department, program, team, students and colleagues as well as anyone in the area who would like to donate.

Thank you for your continued support!!  Together we're providing students free, nutritious food and hopefully helping them to graduate so that they will never be hungry again!!
