The 3rd year school psychology cohort is collecting any unopened boxes of menstrual products as part of their community service project. Donations may be delivered to boxes stationed at Herrick and Scholes library, Powell Campus Center for Student Involvement, Ade Dining Hall, and the Alfred Pharmacy. We will be collecting until the Tuesday prior to Thanksgiving, when we will then deliver all proceeds to the Alfred University Food Pantry, and hopefully a local K-12 school district as well. We appreciate any and all donations, big or small! Any questions can be directed to Nina Mostowfi (nm28@alfred.edu). If anyone feels as strongly as we do, we can provide additional flyers for posting around the community!
