STUDENT-LED DONATION DRIVES ON CAMPUS: PLEASE SHOW YOUR SUPPORT!
Our NU students are truly embracing the University’s Vincentian values this month! Through the passion and compassion of students on campus, there will be several donation drives occurring before Thanksgiving break.

Please consider donating the following needed items: New/Lightly used blankets; Non-perishable food; Winter Gear: Jackets, Scarves, Hats, Gloves, Boots, etc.; Hygiene Products: Deodorant, Toothbrushes, Toothpaste, etc.

The Magdalene Project assists people who are on the streets of Niagara Falls, NY through providing food, clothing, and toiletries to those in need. Their vehicles are essential to transporting these good for their street outreach mission. To assist with repair costs, there will also be a fundraiser from November 18 to November 22, 2019 in Lower Level Gallagher. Please support this effort by purchasing a mug filled with hot cocoa mix!
