Make Helping Students in Need a Part of Your Holiday Plans

Helping hungry Salt Lake Community College students this holiday season is as easy as a click of a mouse or visit to SLCC’s Thayne Center.

The Thayne Center maintains a  wish list” of food and other items you can purchase, eliminating guesswork while providing students with what is most needed. Everything you buy from the list goes directly to SLCC’s four Bruin Pantry locations.

Besides donating wish list items, this holiday season if you find yourself with gift cards you can’t or probably won’t use, consider regifting them to the Thayne Center or Student Life & Leadership. Staff and faculty at SLCC, for example, recently received gift cards for Harmons grocery store. If you don’t shop at Harmons or if you don’t plan to use the card, you might consider donating it to the Thayne Center to assist a student in need.

The Thayne Center accepts donations at its office in STC 020 on the Taylorsville Redwood Campus. More information on the Thayne Center and its mission to assist students and others in the larger community can be found at

As always, thank you for supporting SLCC students and helping them find success during their college experience!
