Giving Tuesday!

Hi Spartans, 

Just a reminder since break is just around the corner! 

My name is Faith Wagner and I am the Vice President of Community Relations with the Student Government Association (SGA). Giving Tuesday is a global holiday where there are millions of people that participate in donating and giving. Giving Tuesday was created in 2012, ten years ago, and Castleton has participated in this ever since. 
This year for Giving Tuesday, the Student Government Association is holding a resource drive. Donations can be made in the name of any SGA-affiliated club or athletic team. All donations are assigned a point value and the three highest-donating groups will receive a prize for their club or team. 
The prize for the top three winners are:

1st Place: $500 

2nd Place: $200 

3rd Place: $100 


Point system:

Non-Perishable Food Item | 5 Points

Soup, tuna, canned sauces, peanut butter, jelly, cereal, sun-butter, canned fruit, canned veggies, stuffing, microwavable rice, spaghettios, etc.

Items must be in good condition and non-expired.

Toiletry Item | 3 Points

Toilet paper, laundry detergent, diapers (all sizes), first aid supplies, can openers, Clorox wipes, tissues, baby wipes, toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, menstrual products, etc.

Clothing Item | 1 Point

All of the donations will be distributed among the following organizations:

Timeline:

Tuesday, Nov. 29, from 8:30 a.m. – 6 p.m. there will be a collection table in the Solarium in the Campus Center. 

Points will be tallied and the winning clubs will be announced via email on Friday December 2nd.
