OLLI to Host July 21st Food Drive for Homeless/Food Insecure Sierra College Students

Nineteen percent of students attending California’s community college system have experienced homelessness in the last year, while 60 percent have experienced recent housing insecurity and 50 percent have struggled with food insecurity, according to a 2020 report. Sierra College students are no exception to these findings says Dr. Linda Williams, Director of Sierra’s Financial Aid Department.
The OLLI at Sierra College Advisory Council is, therefore, doing our part to help alleviate this growing problem for our fellow Sierra College students. OLLI members are encouraged to help fill the Sierra College Food Pantry at the Rocklin and Grass Valley campuses which gives scores of local homeless and food insecure youth a weekly box of food. You can assist in three ways:
Drive up, Drop off
On Wednesday, July 21st from 10:00 to 1:00 pm drive-up, drop-off food collection will occur at the two campuses. OLLI Advisory Council members Linda Derosier and Gretchen Cypin will be at the Rocklin campus in the A-1 parking lot, next to LR - Library/Learning Resource Center (the four-story building). View Rocklin Campus Map Click Here.
Terry McAteer will man the collection at the Grass Valley campus on top of the campus hill in front of the Administrative Offices. View Grass Valley Campus Map Click Here. Stop by and provide a bag of food/supplies. (Needed are: nut/fruit bars, tuna, cups— pudding, ramen, mac/cheese, soup; pasta, pasta sauce, small— soaps, toothpaste, shampoo, deodorant; women’s sanitary pads/tampons)
Send a Check
You are also encouraged to send a check to help Sierra College supplement food purchases. Send your check payable to: Sierra College Foundation ℅ Food Pantry 316 Vernon St., Roseville, CA 95678. Dollars are needed to provide weekly perishable goods!!
Amazon Food Account
Another easy way to give is to purchase food directly from the Sierra College’s Food Pantry account at Amazon. Click on the following link to access that account: Amazon Sierra College Student Food Pantry

OLLI Night at Lincoln Potter's Baseball Game
McBean Stadium in Lincoln, California

Recently, over 80 OLLI at Sierra College members attended OLLI Night at the Lincoln Potter’s Minor League Baseball Team.
The Potter’s, in a slugfest, defeated the Solano Mudcats by a score 12-2!

Pictured on the right is OLLI member, Ginger Freer, and Potter Mascot Peacock Potter. They made a great team, rooting on the Potter sluggers.

Thank you to everyone who came to show their
support for the OLLI at Sierra College program.
