On April 8th, 2017 four Widener students are hosting a “Salute to Service” donation drive at the Widener Baseball Game. The game is scheduled to start at 12pm against Alvernia.
Fans from both sides who want to support should donate the following items: Travel size toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, moist towelettes, shaving cream, and hand & foot warmers. The fans who donate will receive a camouflage wrist band as thank you. Fans who do not bring any items can still purchase the wrist bands for a dollar and those earnings will also be sent. We are partnering with the organization Operation Gratitude who will be receiving all our donations. Operation Gratitude will arrange the donations into care packages and send them to our troops overseas.
If students or faculty cannot attend the game, but would still like to contribute they can contact Julian Jastrzebski by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to have a good turn out and support from fans. Something as simple as deodorant can be so special to the men and women risking their lives so that we can live ours. God Bless America!
