Community Crisis Shelter Donation Drive - Accepting Donations Now!
In the spirit of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October, Cal Poly Safer will be hosting a drive for our local crisis shelters and a competition for the organization that donates the most.
This initiative was created in an effort to take action against domestic violence, support survivors, and show solidarity on the Cal Poly campus. With each donation given to Stand Strong and RISE, a survivor is able to have access to basic needs and care.
The drive will begin Monday, October 1st and will end Friday, October 26th by 12:00pm. Safer will celebrate everyone who was involved, with refreshments and awards for most donated from an individual, student group, and campus organization, on Tuesday, October 30th at 7:00pm in UU 220.
If you would like to donate new or unused items such as, laundry detergent, cleaning supplies, pillows, and luggage bags (see attached list), there is a collection box in the Women's and Gender Studies Department Office in 47-25H. If you prefer to donate grocery, gas, or gift cards, or make a cash donation, there will be a secure envelope in the Women's and Gender Studies Department Office in 47-25H.
