Alva Walmart #178 manager Mark Davis & a number of store associates makes a formal presentation of a $1,250 community grant to the Northwestern Campus Cabinet Food Pantry. Accepting the check are Alanna Negelein, Angelia Case & Tandy Keenan.
January 2019 brought very welcome news to the organizers of the Campus Cabinet Food Pantry at Northwestern Oklahoma State University as the group continues to establish a place that will be helpful to the university’s students and employees.
Just prior to the start of the spring semester, a community grant from Walmart was approved, and a check for $1,250 was sent to the university for food pantry use.
“We are so grateful to Walmart-Alva for believing in our work and awarding the Campus Cabinet food pantry with a $1,250 community grant as we work toward purchasing food, personal hygiene products and other supplies we need for the pantry,” Angelia Case, academic projects assistant/media specialist, said. “This new service project wouldn’t be possible without support from friends like you.”
Mark Davis, the manager of Walmart #178 in Alva, as well as several associates in the local store, were on hand Jan. 18 to make the formal presentation to Case, NWOSU Art Society president Alanna Negelein, Pawnee junior, and Sponsored Programs director Tandy Keenan, who submitted the grant proposal.
The Campus Cabinet is open on Wednesdays from 5 to 7 p.m. in Shockley Hall 108 offering non-perishable foods and personal hygiene items to Northwestern students and employees in need.
