Give back to those who served

From now through Nov. 11, Alpha Kappa Psi is collecting donations of non-perishables and pet food for veterans and their families.

There are drop-off locations on campus at the Blue Connection and Kleiner Commons. There are also two drop-off locations in the Kirkhof Center, those being room 0072 and the Veterans Affairs Office. Donation boxes will be out until 5 p.m. during the week.

Help make a banner for Veterans

On Tuesday, Nov. 8 from 3 to 5 p.m. the Campus Activities Board (CAB) will be in the Kirkhof lobby making a thank you banner to hang on Veterans Day (Nov. 11).

There will be apple cider and donuts provided to those who stop by to help with the banner.

Partner with Helping Hands

Helping Hands is holding its November meeting this Wednesday from 8-9 p.m. in Kirkhof Center room 2263.

The group is collaborating with the Social Work Club to make dog toys to donate.

The group is asking that those who do attend bring old shirts to use to make dog toys. These can be thrifted or from personal closets but they must be clean.

The group will provide some shirts but is also looking for donations.

Meet with the Chinese Language and Culture Club

The Chinese Language and Culture Club will be meeting in the Language Resource Center in Mackinac Hall on Nov. 10 from 6 to 8 p.m. to play Chinese sports games.

Those who attend will be asked multiple-choice questions about the sports. Depending on their answer, they’ll either shoot at a close basketball hoop if correct or a further one if they’re incorrect.

The event is open to anyone regardless of their knowledge of the language, history or culture.

Coffee Crawl with Campus Ministry

On Nov. 12 Campus Ministry will be hosting a coffee crawl downtown.

The group will be meeting at 9 a.m. at the University Club in DeVos C by the Starbucks on the Pew Campus. The group will be visiting various coffee shops in Grand Rapids and doing tastings of the coffee at each one. There will also be donuts provided.

The crawl is free to attend and will run until noon.
