If you are a student experiencing a financial crisis, the Student Support Foundation may be able to provide help. 

If you have no money and are in need of food, the Student Support Foundation operates a food pantry on-campus.  The Food Pantry is open Mondays 11:00 – 2:00 p.m.; Tuesdays, 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.; and Fridays, 11:00 – 1:00 and 1:30 – 3:00 p.m.  For information on what to bring when you visit the Food Pantry and additional information for using the pantry, visit:  https://www.plymouth.edu/life/student-support-foundation/food-resources/

The Food Pantry will not be open November 26 – November 30th

Emergency grants are available to assist undergraduate and graduate students with funding for emergency situations including payment toward a future emergency medical or dental procedure, emergency travel home or travel home at the end of a semester (when all other means have been exhausted), books and school related supplies.  We are unable to assist with items such as:  rent, utilities, tuition, cell phone bills, daycare, parking tickets, PSU related fees, graduate school application fees, testing fees and requests made by student organizations at PSU.

Faculty & Staff: Help a Family for the Holiday – Donate to Thanksgiving Baskets

Posted on: November 12th, 2014 by Debbie

Thanksgiving will be here soon, and many families and elders are struggling to meet their day-to-day needs. This will be the 41st year that Plymouth State has provided Thanksgiving meals to people in need in Plymouth and surrounding towns.

We are anticipating receiving requests for 200 baskets this year. The special circumstance affecting this year’s families and elders we serve is that low levels of food available from the NH Food Bank for each pantry have forced local food pantries to limit people’s use to only once a month. So this year, the Thanksgiving meal we give families and elders is not just a holiday meal but part of their monthly food needs.

Faculty and staff at PSU have always donated generously to this project, and we are asking for everyone’s help this year. All monetary donations go directly to buying food for these baskets. Any donation amount is appreciated.

For those who would like to adopt a specific size family or families, we have broken out the costs of the meals:

$25 for a single or a couple, usually elderly
$35 for a single parent or family with school-age children, more than half of our requests
$40 for larger families

Please make checks payable to “UCM at PSU” with “Thanksgiving Baskets” on the memo line. Send them to either of these addresses:
Larry Spencer c/o Biological Sciences Dept, MSC #64
or
United Campus Ministry, P.O. Box 713, Plymouth, NH, 03264

We will gladly accept donations after Thanksgiving.

If you cannot contribute financially, please encourage students you teach and work with to volunteer to deliver. They can sign up with Kathy Tardif at kmtardif@plymouth.edu by Friday, Nov. 14.
 
This project is coordinated by PSU’s Catholic Campus Ministry and United Campus Ministry, with support from the Phi Beta Upsilon alumni group and the help of Sodexo. If you have any questions, please contact Kathy Tardif at kmtardif@plymouth.edu.
