#iGroveAndGive for the Ole Miss Food Bank

November 18, 2016

#iGroveAndGive

The Ole Miss Women’s Council scholars will collect donations for the Ole Miss Food Bank with the annual Grove and Give campaign before the Ole Miss vs. Mississippi State football game on Saturday, Nov. 26, 2016. Supporters who are unable to donate items in the Grove before the Egg Bowl can support the Ole Miss Food Bank through our new Ignite Ole Miss crowdfunding campaign.

GIVE TODAY: ignite.olemiss.edu/igroveandgive

Drop off your gift of food or hygiene products at the Triplett Alumni Center front lawn and the Union Plaza. A list of items to consider for donation include: shelf stable milk, juice, cereal, canned fruit, breakfast bars, peanut butter, jelly, forks, spoons, knives, napkins, male/female deodorant, toothbrushes, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, feminine hygiene products and laundry detergent. (Note: the Food Bank currently does not have a need for canned vegetables.)

For more information about the Ole Miss Food Bank, call 662-915-2726 or email olemissfoodbank@gmail.com.
