BGSU & Project Connect Hygiene Item and Food Drive Challenge

BGSU’s Center for Public Impact is supporting Wood County’s upcoming Project Connect. This will include three socially distanced, drive-thru events to provide a broad range of direct services to individuals and families at risk of or experiencing homelessness or poverty. We are challenging student organizations, campus offices, groups of friends, alumni, and BGSU family and friends to commit to donating hygiene kits and/or grocery items for Project Connect. Donations should be delivered to the BGSU Center for Public Impact (100 University Hall) no later than March 19, 2021.
