During the last two years, the Yale Library Staff Association (LiSA) has donated over one thousand pounds of food to the Connecticut Food Bank from an autumn pre-holiday food drive, and over $3,500 to Columbus House from the annual holiday party raffle.
Columbus House, Inc. (which provides aid to the homeless) and the Connecticut Food Bank, wish to personally thank the Yale community for their partnership and to share more about the work they are doing. The Yale Library Staff Association is honored to be hosting representatives of these two non-profit organizations at a presentation in the Sterling Memorial Library Lecture Hall next Tuesday afternoon, March 27th, from 1:00 - 2:00 pm.
The speakers will be Ann Carr, the Director of Program Development of Columbus House, and Mary Ingarra, the Communications Director of the Connecticut Food Bank.
All members of the Yale community are welcome to attend this LiSA-sponsored event. Since it will take place during the lunch period, you may bring your own brown bag lunches. In addition, cookies and water will be available in the adjoining Sterling Memorial Library Memorabilia Room.
