The WCU Staff Senate will be accepting food or financial donations to Community Table at the entrance of the Ramsey Center and at the Staff Senate table on the Ramsey Center concourse during Employee Appreciation Day festivities on Thursday, Sept. 1, 2016 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
The Community Table is a nonprofit organization in Jackson County that serves meals to neighbors in need; a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide nutritious meals to our neighbors in need in a welcoming environment. Since 1999, our vision has been that no one in Jackson County goes to bed hungry. Meals are served on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 4-6 p.m. Our food pantry provides groceries for home use on the same days between 11-6. Everyone is welcome and there is never a fee. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming, so come enjoy a nutritious home-cooked meal with us.
Items requested include pasta noodles, canned meats, nonperishable goods, olive and vegetable oils, soups, peanut butter, cereal, baby food, dish soap, plastic bags, oatmeal, aluminum foil and large trash bags.
The Senate is also hosting a photo booth this year. Be sure to stop by and learn about the Staff Senate, donate some food and take a fun picture with your friends and colleagues! See you Thursday.
