TLC Squad Donations The TLC squad this year is doing a volunteer project with Albion Fellows Bacon Center, a domestic violence shelter in town where we donate Christmas shoe boxes with needed items for the women and children of Albion. For the month of November, we are asking for brand new toothbrushes, combs, hair brushes, small shampoos, conditioners, hair ties, women's and children's gloves, headbands, nail polish, lip gloss, chapstick, and any small item that will fit in a shoe box. Place all items in the box on the bookstore counter.

Evansville Rescue Mission Gobbler Gathering Please help the Instrumental Music Students gobble up the opportunity to give back as we collect stuffing mix for the Evansville Rescue Mission Gobbler Gathering Thanksgiving baskets. Last year we donated over 200 boxes of stuffing mix. If every student and every faculty member brings in 1 box or bag of mix, it will be enough for many people in need to enjoy a beautiful Thanksgiving Dinner. There will be a collection box in the lobby for the boxes of stuffing mix.
