Hatter Food Pantry Requests Donations

Please consider donating to the Hatter Pantry, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, to support students staying on campus who may be in need of extra assistance. There is an increasing demand for local pantries, including on our campus.

Hatter Pantry is a completely confidential service located in Griffith Hall (Counseling Services). Since we started the pantry on campus, we have seen a steady increase in use and during this time of uncertainty many of our students are facing additional challenges, including financial hardship.
