CSUN Students to Cover Library Steps with Goods Collected During Food Drive

WHAT: California State University, Northridge student volunteers plan to cover the steps of the CSUN’s Delmar T. Oviatt Library with thousands of items — canned and boxed goods, clothing, toys and books — collected during the university’s annual drive to collect goods for needy San Fernando Valley residents.

For the past two weeks, CSUN students, faculty and staff have donated items at key locations across campus by Unified We Serve, CSUN’s volunteer program. The collected goods will be donated to San Fernando Valley-based MEND (Meet Each Need with Dignity), whose mission is to break the bonds of poverty by providing basic human needs and a pathway to self-reliance.

Last year, Unified We Serve collected more than 6,400 items to donate to MEND in just one week.
