It is critical that campus groups have made contact with an organization or community in need and are trying to help the organization in both the short and long term. Thus, the CIViC is looking for groups who have planned their drive well in advance, have thought about the issue, have set up advocacy and education events around the issue, have volunteered their own time to the cause, who have a strong advertising plan for the drive and who have communicated with the organization that the goods are going to.
While the CIViC is extremely supportive of donations, we also believe that as university community members we must do more. We encourage you to think about how your group can go one step further and educate our university community or make them aware of the issue at hand. How is your group addressing the issue in the long term?
