Blizzard bags

January 25, 2011 —

Everyone likes to wear jeans to work and everyone likes to help others in the community. This month DMU employees can do both, in combination! The Community Service Committee is selling casual day stickers in trade for items to put in blizzard bags. All the needed items are listed on the portal on the community service page.

Now what’s a blizzard bag you may ask. A blizzard bag is delivered to local Meals on Wheels recipients unable to leave their house that would be in trouble if inclement weather prevented the Meals on Wheels folks from getting there. The bags include peanut butter, applesauce, hot chocolate, tuna, crackers and microwaveable meals. Isn’t that a great idea?

So if you’re an employee who’d like a sticker, or a student/University friend who wants to support the project, talk to Melissa Wilder, Lindsay Buechler or Annette Benjamin.
