Engage-NJ Virtual Student Conference 2021!

This is so important:
- for our own mental health,
- for demonstrating our visible stance against injustice and racism, and
- for keeping our communities connected so that our people don’t fall through the cracks.
2020 has tested our mettle – there has been so much to fight for, so much to fight against, so much struggle against the invisible AND against acts to disenfranchise that are in plain sight. It’s time to take stock, to gather and learn from one another in virtual rooms, to listen, and to remember why we volunteer, why we are civically engaged, why community matters, and hear the voices of our peers!

The Drew Food Pantry

Serves resident and commuter students and is managed by Gionna Del Purgatorio C’20, our Drew AmeriCorps Changebuilder Coordinator in the Center for Civic Engagement. The Pantry is located on the first floor of Commons, across from the Bookstore. The food and toiletries available vary upon donations. We hope you will visit the food pantry when you’re on campus! For questions, contact Gionna at  foodpantry@drew.edu.

The Pantry runs entirely on donations and the generosity of our community. In order to best meet the needs of our students, we are always looking for new community partners. If you are interested in partnering with us, contact Gionna.

Program Overview:

The Changebuilders program in conjunction with New Jersey Campus Compact (NJCC) is designed to offer Drew students the opportunity to volunteer both locally and abroad. In an effort to increase a culture of community service at Drew, this program allows students to give back to the community while refining their leadership skills, communication, global awareness and much more! As a Changebuilder, students are expected to complete a minimum of 40 hours of community service for the year. Those who successfully complete their community service hours will be awarded a certificate at the Civic Engagement Award Ceremony.
