The Giving Project

If you are a crafter or want to learn how to crochet or knit useful items for Huskie students in need, please join us for Giving Project meetings. All meetings are in the Glidden Room on the lower level of the Holmes Student Center. We meet from noon-1 p.m. Bring your lunch if you'd like.

Students, staff (CS & SPS), and faculty are all welcome! Completed items are given to the Huskie Food Pantry for students who need warm scarves and hats, washcloths, baby afghans, reusable plastic totes, etc. If you have extra acrylic yarn, crochet hooks or knitting needles, please bring them and we will put them to good use! If you are unable to attend, but want to make items for our students, please email Barb Andree bandree@niu.edu and make a plan to collect your items.

If you are interested in volunteering at the Huskie Food Pantry or email communityservice@niu.edu

Many thanks to all who have contributed already and welcome to all those who would like to join in!
