Want to make a community contribution without leaving Campus?
Published: Monday 6th February 2017
ACU staff are encouraged to support the food and emergency supplies cupboards on each Campus which exist to support students who at times can experience financial hardship.
Ideal items for the cupboards are:
Long-life food items such a canned food, milk, noodles, snack foods
Toiletries and personal hygiene products
To support the dignity of students who need to access them, the cupboards are in inconspicuous locations on Campus. Students who need to access them can be given location details by staff of Campus Ministry, Counselling and Office of Student Success.
The student food and emergency supplies cupboards are an initiative of Campus Ministry which aims to support staff to do four things: BELONG (activities which supporting the building on community), BELIEVE (activities which explore thing of deeper issues), BE SUPPORTED (a listening ear to discuss key life issues) and BECOME (helping staff to reach out to support others).
Donated items for the cupboards can be left with Campus Ministry on your Campus.
