  2. If you would like to host a food or hygiene drive, please contact Michael Cline for information and materials. 
  3. If you would like to make a monetary donation, please donate through the YSU Foundation via this link. (Please designate that this is a gift for the Penguin Pantry.)
  4. Spread the word! Ask your friends, family, and coworkers to consider donating. If you know any YSU students that may need these resources, pass along the information.
