Update: The collection drive has been extended through Friday, November 5.
Every October, the Office of Off-Campus Student Services sponsors Commuter Week. As part of our Good Neighbors program, Commuter Week, October 25-29, consists of a series of programs, a raffle and a basic needs drive all of which benefit Southwest Emergency Services (SWES) allowing them to support families in need in our local community during these difficult economic times.
Commuter Week could not succeed without the support of our partners on and off campus. We are currently collecting basic needs items such as toothpaste, soap, shampoo, deodorant, and other toiletries. You can bring any items to our office or to collection boxes around campus including the lobby of the Admin Building, The Commons, the Shriver Center and the Career Services Center. Last year, we collected over $700 worth of non-perishable toiletries and we would love to top that this year. More information about Commuter Week is available at umbc.edu/ocss.
