Every day in New York, adults and children seek assistance from hospitals, rape crisis, and domestic violence shelters. Often they come in with little more than the clothes they are wearing. Money that shelters and other response organizations spend on personal care items is money that they are not spending on other crucial costs.
The Niagara County Community College Wellness Center, Student Life, Student Housing, and the Alumni Association are now partnering with SUNY's Got Your Back to help stuff comfort bags for these victims and survivors including items such as toothpaste, toothbrush, floss, shampoo, body wash, and so much more.
NCCC has pledged to stuff 4,000 bags and we need your help! Whether you can spend an hour or the entire day, any amount of time and help are appreciated. You can sign up for a specific shift or come whenever you are available!
Registration is not required, but appreciated. To register, contact Cheri Yager by email at email@example.com or by phone at 716-614-6275.
