Turkeys Needed! Help the Whitewater Food Pantry!

“There are signs of turkey trouble as the Thanksgiving holiday approaches, as thousands of needy families in the Madison area might have to go without the holiday staple.” – Channel3000.com

As the holidays draw closer food pantries grow more and more worried. Many Wisconsin food pantries are struggling to make up for losses before they really get hit hard with needy families this winter.

The Whitewater food pantry is one of those that need help in stocking its shelves before the rush of the holidays. Thanksgiving is one time that pantries want to be especially stocked and ready to go because everyone deserves a warm hearty meal on this day of family and celebration.

“Requests for Thanksgiving meals this year are unprecedented…” – Goodman Community Center in Madison via Channel3000.com

Again, the Whitewater food pantry is struggling. They have nothing on their shelves and they are not going to be able to help provide Thanksgiving dinners this year for the people who can’t afford it. The Whitewater food pantry is part of the community and CoBE wants to help them out. We feel responsible in helping spread the word and raise awareness about the need for monetary donations and food items for the Whitewater food pantry.

Here’s how you can help out:

  • Sign up for SAM and GMO’s Turkey Bowl!  This event will be held Tuesday, November 15 from 7-9 at Warkhawk Alley. It is $5/person (teams of 4) plus a nonperishable food item/person. All participants will be awarded community service hours as well. All donations and proceeds support the Whitewater food pantry. E-mail SAM@uww.edu or GMO@uww.edu to sign up or if you have further questions.
  • Donate spare change at AMA’s 4th annual regional conference. On Friday, November 11 from 7:30AM-4:30PM in Hyland Hall’s main lobby there will be a bucket by the main registration/sign-in tables. All change collected will go to helping support the Whitewater food pantry.
  • As part of W3’s Challenge Week they would like to challenge community members and students alike to donate the following items to make the holidays brighter for everyone! Donations are due by Tuesday, November 15th. The items they would like to be donated include; potatoes, canned cranberry sauce, applesauce, squash, canned vegetables, sugar, stuffing mix, canned pie fillings, non-fat dry milk, pie crust, and/or $25 for turkey. (Make checks payable to Whitewater Food Pantry.) Please drop donations off at any of the following locations: Sentry Foods, Campus Ministry Center, 1st Citizen’s State Bank, University Health & Counseling Services, or Food Pantry at the Amory.
  • Contact the Whitewater food pantry directly to see what you can do to help out.

As a community it is very important that we help fill the shelves of the Whitewater food pantry before Thanksgiving! If you would please pass this message along to friends and family it would be very much appreciated. CoBE thanks you in advance for you participation in helping out the community!

If there are any other relative events that we missed in posting please send an e-mail to dac@uww.edu to inform us and we’ll add them to the list!

  1. Does your website have a contact page? I’m having a tough time
    locating it but, I’d like to shoot you an email.

    I’ve got some recommendations for your blog you might be interested in hearing.
    Either way, great website and I look forward to seeing it grow over time.
