St. Norbert College is hosting the first annual “Give and Go: SNC Move-Out” with the cooperation of the Sturzl Center for Community Service and Learning, Residence Hall Association (RHA), Residential Education & Housing (REH), Housekeeping and a local community partner—St. Vincent de Paul. The idea once known as Campus Clean-Up was created by the Leadership Studies Capstone class (LS 400) in 1996.
Give and Go: SNC Move-Out provides on-campus residents with the opportunity to donate their reusable items: non-perishable food, clothing and fabric (clothes, bedding, pillows and curtains), cleaning and hygiene products (even if they are open) and school supplies. The items will be donated to St. Vincent de Paul in Green Bay where the donations will help those in need within our local community.
Give and Go: SNC Move-Out officially began last Friday, April 25. Labeled boxes were placed by RHA in residence halls around campus. We are anticipating reducing the amount of garbage placed in dumpsters in previous years while also giving back to the community.
Beginning today, Thursday, May 1, students who have extra Meal Dollars may go to Phil’s on campus and purchase food items for donation. These items should be placed in the labeled boxes outside of Phil’s and will be donated to St. Vincent de Paul who will distribute the items to those in need through Paul’s Pantry
The purpose of Give and Go: SNC Move-Out is to obtain reusable items from residents and put it in the hands of those in need within our community. If you have any questions or would like additional information, please contact Kalli Seglund at firstname.lastname@example.org.
