Letter from Karen B. Engell
Director of College Health Services

Good Will Mission to the Gulf Coast Has Wheels!

Help to make this holiday season one to remember.

Children and families are still in need. Thousands are still living in shelters and temporary housing—they have lost everything!

To all who have already helped, thank you.

The use of a large truck has just been donated for our use in bringing all of these donated goods to the people of the Gulf Coast whose lives have been devastated by Hurricane Katrina.

But, only 20 percent of the truck has been filled. We have lots more room and need all of your help.

What's needed:

For the children: Clothing, books, toys, and stuffed animals

For the home: Restock the kitchen—utensils, pots and pans, toasters, coffee makers, dishes, and silverware. The linen closet—blankets, sheets, towels, etc.

For the Adults: Clothes for interviewing or work in offices, schools, retail, etc.

Where / When / How:

Bring all of your donations in closed boxes with labels ready to be placed into the truck will be a great help. The students of CAUSE have been doing a great job volunteering with the staff from the Health Center in organizing, sorting, and boxing, but we are running out of time. You can bring your boxes to the Health Center. We will be loading the truck on Monday November 21.

If you have questions call Karen B. Engell, director of College Health Services, at x2170 or email
