Rowdy’s Resource Room to offer more help for NSU students
TAHLEQUAH, Okla. – Northeastern State University’s Riverhawk Food Pantry is expanding into the newly named Rowdy’s Resource Room to offer students in need more assistance.
In addition to food and hygiene items, the Rowdy’s Resource Room will provide clothes, school supplies and cleaning supplies at no cost.
Student committee members Skye Boyce and Pate Thomas agreed they would like to see Rowdy’s Resource Room expand to benefit more students by bringing more awareness to the campus.
“I would also like for us, in the future, to be able to partner with other community organizations to create bigger drives and to expand our efforts to be able to give back to the community that does so much for Northeastern (State University),” said Thomas.
Accepted donations include food, hygiene items, school supplies, new or gently used clothing and business attire.
“The resource room relies upon donations,” said Thomas. “It is the only way for us to acquire the items to provide to students in need.”
Jacob Patrick, the center’s coordinator, said the two “major” motivations why people donate are “to help others that may be in need and to cut down on the waste that is produced when usable items are discarded.”
Donations can be made at the Resource Room, located in the Leoser building by Pizza Hut Express. For more information, email Patrick at firstname.lastname@example.org.
