Campus Collection Boxes Offer an Opportunity to Give Back


This holiday season, Vance-Granville Community College is giving back to the community inclusive of Infinite Possibilities Inc., Families Living Violence Free, and Safe Space Inc. by collecting items for our neighbors served by these organizations. A collection box will be placed on each campus for donations, and we will accept items until Friday, December 15. Please consider donating something from the list below; if everyone will donate at least one item, we can really make a difference in the communities we serve.

List of needed items:

  • Gently-used coats for all sizes and age groups – urgent need
  • Toiletry items
  • Sanitizers
  • Hats, tams, or caps
  • Gloves
  • Scarves
  • Socks
  • Deodorant
  • Toothpaste
  • Floss
  • Toothbrushes
  • Hair products for all ethnicities (oils, creams, etc.)
  • Shampoo and conditioner
  • Lotion
  • Soap
