Another collection effort was a great success! Over 20 boxes full of kitchenware items, such as cutting boards, coffee mugs, pots, and pans were donated Jan. 17, during a Household Goods Drive hosted by the Meadowlark Ambassadors to benefit Kitchen Restore. These much-needed items will be used to create household kits for local families and individuals in need.

Last Tuesday, the Ambassadors received a record number of donations during their annual Clothing Drive. Donations exceeded expectations. Because of the generosity of so many, donations were able to go to not one, but three beneficiaries. These stores included The Encore Shop, The Budget Shop, and Goodwill, all local thrift shops in Manhattan.

Last week, Meadowlark Ambassadors hosted a campus-wide food and hygiene drive to benefit the Blessing Boxes of Manhattan/Riley County.

The drive was inspired by Meadowlark team member Michelle Lawson, who had seen a recent news article that mentioned how numerous Blessing Boxes were turning up empty due to rising food costs and continuing effects from the pandemic.
