Graduate School Outreach Services – Opportunity
Several opportunities exist for students, staff and faculty to help with our current service project. GSOS is collecting items, from August through October 15th, for Deborah’s Place, a women’s homeless shelter that works to break the cycle of homelessness for women and their children.
Donation boxes are located in various locations on both Lakeshore and Water Tower campuses. Items needed include: women & children’s clothing, CTA transit cards, old cell phones with chargers, twin-sized bedding, and kitchen utensils (small appliances, flatware, silverware, etc.).
There is a particular need for personal care items (soap, deodorant, feminine care products) and women’s professional clothing.
Items will be delivered to Deborah’s Place on or around October 19th.
If you would like to help sort, package, and/or deliver donated items, or would like to locate a donation box near you, please contact Sylvia Brown-Hood, GSOS Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or 8-6044.
