Mesa College will be participating in #GivingTuesday this year by accepting donations to The Stand. The Stand is the on campus food and clothing pantry that provides food, toiletries, and professional clothing to students at no charge.
As one of our primary equity initiatives, Mesa College is Taking a Stand Against Hunger, and seeks to alleviate food insecurity for our students by providing a safe and secure environment where all students have access to free food and professional clothing to help them succeed both in the classroom and in the community. The Stand also provides education to the campus and local community about food insecurity.
During the 2017-18 academic year, The Stand provided 18,853 food items to 894 students, and 1995 items of clothing to 214 students. This season, we are hoping that donors will consider helping our students meet basic needs so that they can focus on homework instead of hunger.
