Chapman’s 2010 Holiday Party canned food drive begins today!

November 15, 2010

It’s that time of year again to spread the famous Chapman spirit by donating canned goods and non-perishable food items. 

Donations will go to Mary’s Kitchen, located in Orange just up the road from Chapman.  Mary’s Kitchen provides hot meals and bagged lunches to 125-150 people per day, six days a week.  Run and staffed entirely by volunteers, Mary’s Kitchen has been serving Orange County’s homeless population for more than 25 years. 

In addition to canned goods, Mary’s Kitchen gladly accepts donations of packages of socks and underwear, travel size toiletries (such as hotel soaps and shampoos), toothbrushes, toothpaste, razors, paper goods such as plates, napkins and cups along with plastic silverware. 

Donation containers will be located in:

  • Beckman Hall
  • Argyros Forum
  • Memorial Hall
  • Kennedy Hall
  • Crean Hall
  • Sandhu Residence and Conference Center
  • Marion Knott Studios

 The drive opens today, Monday, Nov. 15, and continues until the Holiday Party on Wednesday, Dec. 22.
