BRIEF: Cougar Cupboard collects donations for holiday boxes

Cougar Cupboard, SIUE’s on-campus food pantry, is currently calling for donations to create holiday boxes in time for Thanksgiving.


The list of items to donate includes canned vegetables, canned turkey, instant mashed potatoes, stuffing and other foods typically served at Thanksgiving meals. The list also includes other necessities such as breakfast foods and toiletries.


Those wishing to donate can do so by using the various drop box locations around campus: the Vadalabene Center, Peck Hall, Lovejoy Library, Rendleman Hall, the Student Success Center, the Kimmel Student Involvement Center and Alumni Hall. Alternatively, community members may make donations online through the You Give Goods website. Donations for the holiday boxes will be accepted through Oct. 23.


All current students, staff and faculty members may sign up to receive a holiday box. Individuals may find the link to sign up for a box on the Cougar Cupboard’s Facebook page. The boxes will be available for pickup from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Nov. 16-20 at the Kimmel Student Involvement Center front desk.
