Holiday charity drives ring in the season


'Tis the season for holiday food, clothing and toy drives. The following is a list of some of the ways the campus community can join in the spirit of giving.

Support services, which includes transportation and parking services, receiving, mail services, reprographics, procurement, the Onecard center and photocopy services, are having a food drive from Nov. 19 through Dec. 21. Non-perishable food items will be accepted and there will be marked drop boxes at various locations around campus including the parking office in Foley Hall. Monetary donations can also be made by sending a check payable to State Employees Food Drive to Nancy Fox at campus zip 6076. Receipts will be mailed. For more information and collection box locations call the parking office at 278-7275.

The housing office will hold its annual clothing drive. Details are still being finalized but collection bins are scheduled to be available in residence hall rec rooms. For more information call Roger Guzowski at 278-5801.

The University Staff Assembly is continuing its teddy bear drive for the families of the victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Bears can be dropped off in several locations around campus including dean's offices, Sacramento Hall 226 and the CSUS Foundation in Bookstore 312.

For more information about the campaign, see the USA website at www.csus.edu/usa/teddy.htm or contact Thomas Matlock at 278-6578.

And the Sting Team, a freshman leadership group through ASI, is putting on a week of giving Nov. 26 through Nov. 30. For details, call Angela at ASI, 278-6784. ASI is also working with USA on its teddy bear drive.
