The State of the State Conference

Community Service


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 have 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 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 21th. These items can be deposited in the donation receptacles that will be located at the entrance of the Ballroom in the Bowen-Thompson Student Union.  

Thank you so very much.
