WWU campus partners are continuing a donation drive this week to collect menstrual hygiene products, toiletry items, and women’s socks and underwear to be donated to the Lighthouse Mission for use in their facilities. The overall goal is to bring awareness to some of the unique challenges faced by those in need in Bellingham. Our collections will help satisfy the high demand for these items at local Bellingham shelters. We collected 100+ packages totaling 3,400+ individual products during the first week!
Each person who donates this week is eligible to receive tickets to the Men’s Basketball game versus Columbia Bible College on Dec. 5 at 5 p.m. While full boxes of menstrual hygiene products are encouraged, packaged single items will be accepted. In addition, socks, underwear, soap, shampoo, deodorant, toothbrushes, and toothpaste are being collected (travel size and full size items accepted).
Donations can be dropped at the following locations: Residence Hall front desks, Wade King Recreation Center, Edens Hall 118 (Men’s Resiliency Office), Carver Gym Box Office on game days, and at the Sehome Village Haggen , (11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Dec. 8). Contact Brandon Joseph with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org or ext. 2127.
We hope you are able to help! See you at the game!
