With an urgent need at the Feed the Pack food pantry due to disaster relief for Hurricane Matthew, the deadline for the Staff Senate’s Bountiful Harvest food drive has been extended to Dec. 5. Shelves are bare and there is an immediate need to help fellow system institution UNC-Pembroke.

Items most needed to restock the pantry include non-perishable canned food items; whole grains, pasta and rice; and paper, hygiene and household items. Multiple drop-off points are located around campus.

The Staff Senate’s Warm the Pack winter coat drive, which will also aid students at institutions affected by the Oct. 9 hurricane, has also been extended until Nov. 28. Donate a new or gently used fall or winter coat at various drop-off points across campus.
