Amazon Wishlist Created for ECC Food Pantry
There is a new, easier way to help East Central College students who need help putting food on the table, or those who can’t afford school supplies.
The ECC Food Pantry is available to all students in need at the College. It offers food, common household items and supplies for school.
And now, those things can be purchased on Amazon.com, where a “Wishlist” has been created, according to Abbie Bishop, wellness navigator at the Falcon Career Center.
“Our staff is trying to build up the inventory so that we are able to provide plenty of food and other items when students reach out to the pantry,” Bishop said. “If you would like to donate, we have created an Amazon Wishlist that will ship the items directly to ECC.”
Click here, Amazon Wishlist, to visit the list and purchase items to be used by students.
Donors also can contribute the “old-fashioned” way, by dropping items off at the College. To do so, contact Bishop at 636-584-6632 or firstname.lastname@example.org beforehand.
“If you would like to drop off any donations that you may already have around your house, don’t hesitate to reach out,” Bishop added. “We greatly appreciate it!”
Those in Need
The Food Pantry is only available to ECC students — in Union and Rolla — who must present a student ID when picking up items.
Students will be asked their email address and name which will only be used for the form. No records of the pantry visit are maintained. Students also will be asked to select a date, time, and which campus pantry they would like to visit.
