How to Support the Pantry
Hendricks Chapel relies on generous donations from the Syracuse University community to stock the food pantry. Ways to support the food pantry include:
- Donating food or personal care items. Physical donations may be dropped off at the Hendricks Chapel Dean’s Suite. Items may also be ordered through our Amazon Wish List, which ships items directly to the pantry. All are encouraged to donate to the Food Pantry Support Fund.
- Holding a food and toiletry drive. Student groups, residence hall floors, offices, and departments can hold food and toiletry drives to benefit the food pantry. Reach out to Leondra Tyler to learn how you can “Adopt-A-Month” for the pantry!
- Volunteering at the food pantry. Volunteers are needed to stock and organize the pantry, assist with fresh produce deliveries on Fridays and answer questions for visitors. To volunteer, please contact Leondra Tyler, 315.443.1254 or email@example.com.
