As the holidays approach, Nazareth’s campus community is helping families in need by collecting food for holiday baskets. The center for spirituality, nursing department, and campus safety are sponsoring this year’s Annual Thanksgiving Basket Collection to benefit needy families through the Dimitri House. Food Collection begins on Wednesday, November 3 through Wednesday, November 17. Food items can be dropped off at the Center for Spirituality Office in Golisano Academic Center room 153 or the nursing department’s office in Smyth Hall room 283 located on the Nazareth College campus at 4245 East Avenue, Rochester, N.Y. 14618. If you would like to help with organizing food and baskets, students will gather in the Linehan Chapel in the Golisano Academic Center on Thursday, November 18 from 10 a.m. to noon and 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Help delivering baskets will be on Friday, November 19 from 10 a.m. to noon. To make a monetary donation, send checks made out to “Nazareth College” to the Center for Spirituality department. Please write “Thanksgiving Baskets” on the check. All money will be used to purchase food items to complete the baskets.
If you are still looking for a way to help, Nazareth College campus safety is hosting their annual Food for Fines program from November 1 – 18. This program gives students the opportunity to cancel parking ticket fines by donating food items. Campus safety will waive parking fines for most parking tickets (up to two tickets) with a donation of four food items per ticket and a copy of the ticket is needed with your food donation. Parking tickets exclude handicap and moving violations, and non-perishable food items can be brought directly to the campus safety office located in the Shults Center.
