Blessings in a Backpack: We Need YOUR Help!

We need your help collecting clean plastic grocery bags, so over break please save your plastic bags! Blessings in a Backpack uses 350 bags each weekend to send out backpacks of food to elementary students from King, Nielson, and Steele Elementary School for over the weekend. Our hope is to reduce the number of plastic bags being wasted each week by having a collaborative plastic bag collection!


Please place your bags in the clearly labeled container in the mail room once we are all back! (Located in the basement of Seymour Union)


Thanks a ton!

Winter Break: Taylor Lounge & Games Room

The physical lounge space will be open 24 hours a day for the entire break; unfortunately, we will not be staffing the lounge regularly so the games closet will be locked. However, if you are interested in having events in the lounge- movie nights, game nights, etc.- please contact Travis Greenlee at tagreenlee@knox.edu so we can make accommodations. Thanks!
