The State of the State

Community Service Project


Given the issue of monetary security in the face of economic uncertainty and hardship, concerns for the well-being of every individual have become even more pronounced. The community service sub-committee is excited to announce that this year we will continue with a service element incorporated within the State of the State Conference. As part of the community outreach effort, our sub-committee members have identified two Non Profit Organizations (NPOs) in Bowling Green that will be benefiting from your donation. They are the BG Christian Food Pantry and the Link Crisis Center (part of Behavioral Connections). They are in need of canned goods and toiletries.

All participation in the food and toiletries donations is purely voluntary and greatly appreciated. Below you will find a list of items that have been identified as needed. Please bring your items for donation to the State of the State conference on March 20th. These items can be deposited in the donation receptacles that will be located at the registration area near the entrance of the Ballroom in the Bowen-Thompson Student Union.

Last year, SOS attendees made a huge difference with their donations. Here is a Thank You note from Behavior Connections.
