FYF Semester of Service Class to Collect Items for Ruth's Place

Please consider donating to the Semester of Service FYF for our FriendsGiving event on Tuesday, Dec. 3.

The FYF students in this course will visit Ruth's Place women's shelter to distribute care baskets of collected items.  We would like to have enough products to create 25 baskets, one for each of the women in residence.

Please contact Megan Valkenburg at megan.boone@wilkes.edu if you have any questions or would like to make a larger donation.
