School Supply Drive 001S.A.C. Activities:

Children’s Summer Food Program – The UMW community spent the summer donating and collecting food to give to needy children who depend on school meals and don’t necessarily have enough food during summer months. So far, seven boxes and five bags of food have been delivered.

School Supply Drive – A school supply drive is currently in full swing. There are donation locations across campus. Robert E. Lee and Hugh Mercer elementary schools will receive the supplies as the S.A.C. collects them.

Stay tuned for information on our holiday campaigns.

SAC Sponsors School Supply, WhyHunger Campaigns

School Supply Drive 001The Staff Advisory Council’s Activities Committee is initiating two simultaneous campaigns that run through the month of August.

The first campaign is the annual School Supplies Drive, benefiting several area elementary schools.  Among the items needed are pencils, spiral notebooks, erasers, crayons, glue sticks, tissues, and plastic bags.  For a complete list of school supplies, visit www.walmart.com/classrooms/lists/57-Elementary-K-2nd-School-Supplies-List.  Last year, the SAC donated to four area elementary schools.

School supplies will be stored on campus until Friday, Aug 29th, and then delivered on Monday, Sept 1.  All area schools begin on Tuesday, September 2nd this year.

In addition to the School Supply Drive, we will be participating in WhyHunger’s Summer Food Program targeting our area children who have been fed at school during the school year, but may not have enough food during the summer months.

WhyHunger is a national organization striving to close the hunger gap between the close of school in the summer and beginning of school in the fall.

As we collect food, the Activities Committee will deliver the donations weekly to the following WhyHunger centers in our area:

·         Bragg Hill Family Life Center

·         Hazel Hill Complex

·         Mayfield Civic Association

·         Lafayette Upper Elementary

Current UMW donation locations for both drives are:

Fairfax House – Human Resources Office

Jepson Alumni Executive Center

Lee Hall

Marye House

Eagle Village – 4th floor

GW – 3rd floor

Trinkle Hall, 2nd floor

Stafford Campus – South

Facilities Services – Lobby

To find out how you and your department can help, or to become a donation location, contact Priscilla Sullivan, S.A.C. Activities Chair at psulliva@umw.edu.

The Eagle Has a Name!

Introducing Baldwin

Introducing Baldwin

The Name the Eagle Contest

Winning Name:  Baldwin
Submitted By:  Tameka Jalal, Office Manager in the Events Office
Tameka will receive a free lunch in Seacobeck

Now that it has a name, Baldwin will begin flying around campus, landing on unsuspecting members of the University community.  When Baldwin lands, instructions on how to send him off to the next person will come with him.  Baldwin’s victim may choose the next place he lands.

Any additions or “improvements” to Baldwin along the way are strongly encouraged.
