- Account name: UOW Pulse
- BSB: 082886
- Account number: 037973092
- Reference: IGA + your name
- Cost: $20 per pack
To make it easy, IGA (UniShop) will deliver these packs to Building 11 on your behalf. IGA on campus have been an incredible supporter of this project and have been supplying these packs at cost. Thank you so much to the IGA team for their support and generosity.
Donations of non-perishable food items/toiletries
Donations of non-perishable food items and toiletries are being distributed to Wollongong-based students each Saturday morning on campus. If you’d like to add a few extra items to your trolley on your next grocery shop just drop your donation off to the donation point at the Student Life counter on Level 1 in Building 11 or at Business Central (in Sydney or Wollongong) between 9am and 4pm.
Items such as rice, long life milk, pasta, oil, pasta sauce, sanitary items, tinned fruits and vegetables are really appreciated.
Write a ‘message of hope’
Write a message of good wishes and encouragement that will be printed and put into a pantry pack shared with students. This is a wonderful way to let the students know that you’re thinking of them.
