Starting 2020 Off Right

January 07, 2020

2019 is over and our campaign has ended!  From just 5 days of campaigning that turned into the rest of December, we were able to surpass our goal of $5,000!  Together, you raised $5,350 for Raider Red’s Food Pantry!  Thank you to all who donated to help our students facing food insecurity.


With the number of students visiting the food pantry increasing dramatically each semester since the food pantry opened, the more we are in need of donations to help our students be successful.  With the donated funds, we will be able to restock our shelves by supplementing the food that runs out the fastest or the food we run low on.  If you find yourself wanting to further support Raider Red’s Food Pantry throughout the year, there are different ways you can do so!  You can donate items at the pantry, shop from our Amazon Wishlist, donate electronically to our fund, or donate cash/check in person.  More details below.


Thank you again for all of your help this December.  Our students truly appreciate your generosity.  Feel free to check us out on and on our Facebook page, @RaiderRedsFoodPantry.


With thanks and appreciation,

Raider Red’s Food Pantry Team

We did it!

December 13, 2019

The Fall 2019 semester has ended, with graduations taking place today and tomorrow. We are excited to share that in this busy week, we did it! We reached our goal of $5,000! Thank you to all of our supporters who helped make it happen! Your donations will help us as we fight food insecurity faced by our students.  We still have 19 days left, so feel free to share and encourage others to join you on this fight against food insecurity on campus.


Earlier this week, we shared a few messages from students on how Raider Red's Food Pantry has made an impact on their lives.  Here are the rest of the messages we received from students in a word cloud.  Several students mentioned how had the food pantry not been a resource available to them, they would've starved.  Your donations truly make an amazing impact on the lives of our students so they can be successful.  Thank you.

December 9, 2019 Update

December 09, 2019

We are excited to announce that our project has been extended! We are incredibly close to our goal, and we believe we can reach $5,000. Thank you to all our donors thus far for helping us get to $4,145 in just 5 days! We have also had an increase in inquiries and deliveries from our Amazon Wish List during the campaign. (Feel free to check out our wish list It's been a wonderful week with so much support from you all. Thank you!  In the last few days, we've asked our students "how has Raider Red's Food Pantry been helpful to you?" This is the impact you have made with your donations.

Day 1 - Past Half Way

December 04, 2019

Good morning,


Thank you to everyone for your generous and thoughtful donations during Giving Tuesday!  We were able to raise $2610 on Tuesday, which was 52% of our goal!  Your donations will help the students that visit us and will be visiting us for the first time as the academic year progresses.  There have been countless times when first time visitors sigh in relief as they walk in/out and realize they will be able to eat.  Sometimes they'll share with us that they won't have to starve anymore.  Your help is crucial for many of our students' well-being as they work to be academically successful.  This week, the Daily Toreador published an article on Raider Red's Food Pantry.  I welcome you to read it to learn more about the food pantry (  We are still a newer resource on campus, but we are working hard to meet and keep up with our students' needs.


Thank you again for a wonderful first day!
