Grizzlies Give Back

As we celebrate our five-year anniversary, we continue our tradition of giving back to the community. To mark our special year, we’re tripling our efforts with three separate initiatives. On November 1st, in a partnership with the Single Stop office and the Student Government Association, we’re launching a canned/non-perishable foods drive, baby items drive, and a Coins for Caring drive.

We need YOUR help to make this the most successful charitable drive to date. Throughout November we’ll update the community on the amount of items/coins collected. On CUNY Tuesday, November 28th, we’ll also celebrate with a final big push for donations as part of #CUNYTuesday and culminate the campaign on November 30th.

Food and baby items donated during this giving back campaign will be collected by and held at the Single Stop office. Those items will be given to Guttman students on an as-need basis. Coins for Caring proceeds will be donated to UNICEF and SOMOS New York charities to help Puerto Rico.
