The Gwen Hale Resource Center Needs Your Help!

GHRC Clothing Drive

The Gwen Hale Resource Center is serving record numbers of students, thanks to support from across the University. (We have had over 500 visits to the Center this academic year!)

We are running low on a variety of important supplies and would like your help, if you’re able to give it. Here is a list (we update it periodically) of our most needed food and toiletry items.

And we need clothes! If you can spare some (clean, gently used) pants, jeans, professional clothes (especially those traditionally worn by women), warm weather clothes – we would be so grateful!

Donations of food, toiletries and clothing can be dropped off either at the Hale Center (Floor “A” in Lee Hall, using the elevator closest to Monroe) or at the Center for Community Engagement (Suite 320 in the CRUC).

If you’d rather give time than stuff – boy would we love to have you! We regularly need help organizing the Center, staffing Food Bank pop-up markets (twice a month), picking up donations from Giant – and many other possibilities. Just contact us at either or

Please don’t forget that the GHRC is here for any member of the UMW community: please spread the word freely (our hours are Mon-Tues-Fri 1-6 p.m.), and feel welcomed to come and get whatever you may need, as well.

Thanks again for your consistent support of the Gwen Hale Resource Center. Our students truly need and appreciate it.
