Diaper Drive
Ends July 16th
Due to the ongoing formula shortage, and because WIC only applies to specific brands of formula, families who rely on WIC continue to spend their own non-WIC income to buy food for their babies. Help ease the financial burden on our neighbors who are facing this shortage by supporting the Social Action Committee‘s diaper drive. Drop off diapers in the CEH lobby.

SAC is excited to host two “get out the vote” letter writing parties at CEH. Come nosh and schmooze and help get out the vote!
SAC will provide letters, stamps and envelopes, coffee and bagels! Your job will be to add addresses (provided) and personal messages. PLEASE REGISTER so we know how many letters to have ready!
We’ll be writing letters for Vote Forward. Vote Forward is a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization. The mission is to empower grassroots volunteers to encourage their fellow citizens in underrepresented communities to vote. You can learn more about the organization here. Letter writing matters: “We’ve shown that Vote Forward letters can boost voter turnout by as much as 3.4 percentage points. This is big! Our handwritten letters are among the most effective ways you can help get out the vote.”
