The staff at Hope College Libraries are holding a food and care product drive for the Community Action House during the month of December. The Community Action House provides food, clothing, and housing assistance, as well as educational outreach and case management services.
The CAH would like to collect 150,000 pounds of food for families, as well as personal care products. Particularly helpful are personal products, as these are not covered by food stamps. Here are the items we are collecting for the drive:
Food Items: Spaghetti Sauce, Rice, Canned Fruit, Sugar, Flour, Spaghetti, Canned Vegetables, Canned Pasta, Boxed Dinners, Cereal/Oatmeal, Ramen Noodles
Personal Care Products: Laundry Soap, Bar Soap, Baby Wipes, Deodorant, Shampoo, Toothpaste, Feminine Products, Cleaning Supplies, Toilet Paper, Razors, Garbage Bags
For a printable list, click here.
Items can be brought to Van Wylen Library and dropped off at the display case by the main doors. We will be collecting through the end of exam week. Thank you for your generosity!
