Donate food in Jackson Library

The UNCG Staff Senate  is conducting a food drive for the Greensboro Urban Ministry through September 26th.  

There's a donation box on the 1st floor of Jackson Library across from the Check Out Desk.  

As you can see from this blog post their cupboards are bare and they are not able to provide assistance to needy families. Sadly, food insecurity plagues 23% of our community.
