Quarterly Toiletry Drive

The Violence Prevention Center and the Progress and Completion Center host a quarterly donation drive to collect toiletries and personal care items that are available to any member of our Green River campus community. We know that even though these items are important, they can be the first thing people do without when they are dealing with personal crises financial difficulties.

All of the items collected during the quarterly drive are split between the VPC and Progress and Completion so that people can access the items in multiple spaces.

Between April 6th and May 4th: toiletry items are still available on campus. Please contact Campus Safety at 253-288-3350 to arrange a time to pick up items.

Spring Quarter Toiletry Drive: has been cancelled
Summer Quarter Toiletry Drive: date to be determined
