The Operating Staff Council’s Public Relations and Activities Committee, is sponsoring the last Giving Project Workshop, before its summer hiatus, on Tuesday, May 23, in the Glidden Room of the Holmes Student Center, from noon-1 p.m. Yarn is available for many projects, some crochet hooks, as well as “plarn” (plastic yarn) to make tote bags.
Many useful and beautiful items have been crocheted and knit over the past several months, and donated to students through the Huskie Food Pantry. If you are a knitter or crocheter, you can continue to make baby blankets, washcloths, tote bags, and other useful items and take them directly to the Huskie Food Pantry on evenings they are open (every other week beginning Thursday, June 1, through Thursday, Aug. 24, from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.).
For information on this last workshop or on future workshops planned in August, email Barb Andree at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 815-753-8697. The Operating Staff Council website has information on this, and other programs, as well.
