At the game, the Wenatchee Valley College Foundation will be collecting donations for the Knights Kupboard, WVC’s food pantry for students in need. Over 10 students visit the pantry each week during the academic year, which is run by the counseling department.
Food items needed for the pantry include nonperishable microwavable food, cereal, cereal bars, cooking oil, jams and peanut butter. Non-food items needed include shampoo, deodorant, tampons, menstrual pads, toothpaste and toothbrushes.
The WVC Foundation was incorporated in 1971. It exists to build relationships between the community and the college and raise financial support for Wenatchee Valley College students, programs, faculty and staff, as well as special projects such as building campaigns like the Music and Art Center.
