Week 3 of "Back2Basics"

Thank you for making our "Back2Basics" service project a great success so far! We have been able to deliver all the donations from the first two weeks to local service agencies, and they have been thankful to have more to share with their clients.

To help us gain perspective of the needs in the community, the director of the food pantry told us that even with all the packages of TP we were able to donate, each client receives only one roll and it would all be gone within the week. That is a reminder to all of us to keep showing generosity throughout the year and to be very thankful for our many gifts.

This Friday, December 18, is the last collection for Back2Basics. It's CHRISTMAS THEME DAY! Students can wear Christmas colors or themed apparel - it's a great day to rock that Santa hat or your candy cane socks!

Our collection items are soap, shampoo and conditioner, or a donation of cash or change in the bucket at the door. THANK YOU!

Participation in the collection or special dress day is always optional.

SPECIAL NOTE! On Friday, Dec. 18, NIPSCO will be working on our site and will need to turn off the gas supply for a couple of hours. The building should retain heat well for that short time, but just in case, be sure to bring along a sweater or sweatshirt on Friday. Even if it gets a little chilly, the holiday excitement and treats should keep us warm!
