Help those in need

The School of Information annually hosts a charitable drive in December to support local community members who have a demonstrated need. Donations can be dropped off at the UMSI Engagement Center (777 N. University Ave.) and the UMSI Dean’s Office (4th floor, North Quad) during regular business hours. Donations can also be brought to the UMSI Winter Festival from 2-4 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 12 in Space 2435 North Quad.

This year, donations will go to Ozone House, a community-based nonprofit agency that helps young people in Washtenaw County lead safe, healthy and productive lives through intensive intervention and prevention services.

Suggested donations:

  • $25 gift cards for Meijer, Target and Walmart
  • Hygiene and household items (lotion, paper products, etc.)
