Dover, Delaware– Students at the Harris School of Business have a lot of heart. This year, students at the Dover campus realized that some of their fellow students were struggling to make ends meet. And it didn’t take them long to do something about it.

The student council decided to hold a food drive and a clothing drive. By pulling together everyone’s resources, they could work together to support their fellow students who were struggling. Within weeks, a large number of donations had come in. The items are shelved in a closet on the campus, and are available to students who need them.

“Our students really care about one another, and they respect that everyone comes from different backgrounds,” says Nikole Schriefer, Associate School Director. “The donations are very generous, and they mean a lot to the people who are receiving them.” Any student who is interested in learning more about the food and clothing closet may contact Ms. Schriefer privately.

Any students who want to donate to the food and clothing closet are encouraged to do so. Here are some items that may be useful:

  • Canned goods, including soups, chili, baked beans, tuna, and vegetables
  • Peanut butter
  • Boxed items such as pasta, macaroni & cheese, and pasta meal kits like Hamburger Helper
  • Low-sugar cereals
  • Juice boxes
  • Fruit cups and applesauce cups
  • Baby food
  • Diapers
  • Gently used children’s clothing
  • Gently used adult clothing that could be appropriate for a job interview
  • Gently used scrubs

The Harris School of Business is proud of the acts of kindness that Harris students share with one another, and wishes the best of luck to all its students as they pursue their career training with us.
