donation, it will be put on display; so the sooner you donate, the longer our
students and guests will be able to view your donation. We welcome your business cards

Proceeds benefit the Serving People Across Neighborhoods (SPAN), a local organization that provides emergency food and financial services to families. The three main areas of assistance they provide are: prevention of evictions, prevention of utility disruption, and meeting medical or prescription needs.
A big thank you to our generous donors! We'll update listings and links to our donors as we get more information and more items. The following list of donations is a work-in-progress and does not reflect the donations we currently have.
We are also accepting non-perishable food and items such as toothbrushes for SPAN's pantry. For every item you donate, you will receive an entry into our door prize drawing.
