‘Love for Lobes’ earring drive

More next week, but staff members from across campus said “yes” to the request from Green Bay Southwest High School DECA students to partner in a holiday service project.

Book drive near goal

In this final week of the drive, 1,367 books have been collected toward the 1,500 goal in partnership with the Service League Back to School Store. We are guessing that if you did a little shopping this weekend, the American Intercultural Center would still accept the books on Monday. Thanks to all who participated over the past month.

Back to School Store looking for UWGB’s help

The campus community received a note this week from Georgia Miller… UW-Green Bay is partnering with the Service League of Green Bay in the collection effort of books for approximately 1,500 community children. From the communication, “If each member of the campus community would donate one book…” Collection boxes are labeled and located in Academic Technology Services, Outreach, AIC, Counseling and Health, GBOSS, CL 8th floor, Wood Hall 420 and The Phoenix Bookstore. Please consider a donation, now through May 13.

Bone Marrow Drive rescheduled for March 31

Due to the weather conditions, a campus bone marrow drive was rescheduled for 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday, March 31 by the University Ticketing and Information Center in the University Union. Tri-Beta is sponsoring the drive on behalf of the Delete Blood Cancer organization to help patients searching for a donor match. Members of the campus community are encouraged to sign up as a donor on the bone marrow registry with a simple cheek swab.

Reminder: Book drive for ‘Little Libraries’

The National Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi, UWGB Chapter, is sponsoring a book drive. Please drop off new or gently used, elementary level books in the “Little Libraries” located around campus. The books will be distributed to Green Bay area schools. The “Little Library” drop boxes are located in Cofrin Library second floor Information Desk, GAC Lab, SA Cafeteria, Rosewood Café, Lab Sciences second floor study area, the Phi Kappa Phi Office, TH 335, the Kress Events Center and The Phoenix Bookstore.  The book drive runs through April 1.

Tri-Beta Bone Marrow Drive, March 24

The biological honor society, Tri-Beta, is sponsoring a bone marrow drive, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. March 24 just outside the Phoenix Club to encourage people to sign up as potential donors for someone in need of a life-saving bone marrow transplant (BMT). Bone marrow transplants are performed to cure people of certain forms of leukemia, lymphoma and breast cancer. Finding a match for these procedures outside of sibling relationships can be challenging, so bone marrow drives are important opportunities to improve the odds of finding matches when there is a need. A member of the UW-Green Bay campus, identified by a recent Tri-Beta drive, matched someone in need of a bone marrow transplant and saved a life.  Please consider serving as a potential donor by providing a cheek swab at the Phoenix Club.

Phlash TV, Salvation Army join forces for Giving Tree drive

‘Tis the season to help one another, and Phlash TV is teaming up with the Salvation Army to do just that. Giving trees with gift donation suggestions have been placed at The Phoenix Bookstore, in the Kress Events Center and in the Residence Life Community Center. Donations accepted through Dec. 9 (Salvation Army angel tags) or 16 (colored paper ornament gifts). Full details.
