Upcoming Food Drive

The Staff Advisory Council is asking for donations to help the homeless and needy in the area with a non-perishable food drive. The drive will begin in September and continue through the holidays.  In particular, the drive is looking for seasonal donations for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Remember to pick up a couple of extra non-perishable items to put in one of the S.A.C’s collection boxes.  If you cannot find a box to place your donations, please contact an S.A.C member.

Note of Thanks to Back-To-School Donors

The Staff Advisory Council would like to thank everyone that donated to the back-to-school drive.  The final pick-up was today, and Stafford County School students say “Thank you!” We truly could not have done it without you all being so generous.

Accepting Larry Atkins Award Nominations

Friday, Sept. 11 is the last day for nominations for the Larry Atkins award.  We have a few, but we want to make sure we have all of the deserving employees nominated and recognized.

True to the award’s former name, “We Couldn’t Do it Without” them!

Please ask an S.A.C. member if you have questions, or contact John Symonds at jsymonds@umw.edu.

Last Call for Back-to-School Donations

Please gather your donations for the Staff Advisory Council’s Back-to-School drive and bring them to a S.A.C. member or to the collection boxes in your departments by TUESDAY, Sept. 1.  Our donations are being used in the Stafford county school system this year.

We appreciate all you have done to help the less fortunate students in our schools.

Back to School Donations Needed

One more week to go!  Please take some time and pick up a couple of items that would be useful to an elementary aged child.  Examples like, tissues, folders, binders, paper packs, composition books, pens and #2 pencils.

We thank you for your donations so far and hope we can make a big dent in helping the students that otherwise wouldn’t be able to have these things for the school year.

In Appreciation for your support,

Your Staff Advisory Council
