"Blessing Box" Food Restock
We hope your student is successfully adjusting to remote learning and exploring new ways to stay connected to friends and classmates. As a reminder, tutoring and other support services are just a click or a phone call away. Social distancing may separate us for a time, but we are in this together!

The majority of students were blessed to return home, but some students had extenuating circumstances which required them to stay in USC Aiken housing. We are thankful to Aramark for providing take-out options for them, but we know they would appreciate the opportunity to fix home cooked meals to eat in the security of their rooms. They need groceries to do this.

As you are able, would you consider helping us restock non-perishable food in our Blessing Box, located in the heart of campus? Students can walk to this location to get what they need for a meal. Suggested donation items are listed below, and donations are accepted through May 1. If you can leave a couple grocery bags for student use, that would be helpful, too.

The box is located on Scholar Loop, across from the softball field, and adjacent to the indoor pool. To comply with state and federal social distancing policies, please sign up for a specific drop-off time.

On behalf of our students and the entire Pacer community, THANK YOU!
