Penguin Pantry celebrates three years with homemade Thankgiving meals for students

To celebrate, we are providing homemade Thanksgiving Dinners - made by our Culinary Department! 

Your $30 donation will provide a family of four with a precooked Thanksgiving dinner and dessert.

As an added bonus, all gifts of $10 or more to any area of campus, including the Thanksgiving dinner project, count toward the Employee Giving Campaign, and help us unlock a $5,000 match to the Emergency Grants fund, provided by generous donors. 

The Clark College Foundation and Clark College Cashier’s office are both able to accept your gift.

Foundation:
Give online with Clark College Foundation online giving form, and choose ‘Penguin Pantry’ from the drop down menu under “Select an Area of Support”. In the comments box, note “Thanksgiving dinner”.

Cashier’s Office:
Mail a check/money order made out to Clark College to the Cashier's Office (PUB 153) or call (360) 992-2571 on Tuesday or Thursday from 8am-1pm to pay over the phone.

Donate by Friday, November 20th at 5pm.

Do you know a student that could benefit from this opportunity? Encourage them to submit a Penguin Pantry Request Form available on their MyClark@Clark.
