Sophomore LJ Jensen has led an effort to create the new 100% Free Thrift Store on campus, located in Hiett Room 105! The grand opening took place this morning. The Thrift Store will have open hours every day from 9am to 9pm from now until June 8: feel free to stop by at your convenience.

Students can donate clothes or items to the bins in the resident hall lobbies. Quad houses can donate in Sage or Kohler. Every item within the thrift store is 100% free to take besides the bookshelves, coat racks, and hangers. There are electronic waivers to fill out when taking electronics (such as mini fridges) from the store.

Make sure to also stop by Warch Campus Center on May 23rd between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. to get your FREE cookie from Manderfield’s Bakery (500 available) as a small way to say thank you for supporting the senior class gift.

Student Food Pantry & How You Can Help

  • Location:  Memorial Hall – West Entrance, main floor
  • Everyday 9 AM-Midnight

The Student Food Pantry is available to all students who are in immediate need or do not have access to essential items. Please be conscientious in what you take and how much you take from the space. The pantry includes non-perishable food items, personal hygiene products, and school supplies. Due to limited space, we have suspended donations of clothing and books.

The pantry is supported through the generosity of community, local businesses, and personal donations of money and supplies, as well as a small budget provided by Lawrence University. We continue to seek partners on and off campus who are willing to support our students.

How can I help?

There are several ways you can help! 

Order Items off of our NEW Amazon Wish ListItems purchased through our wish list can be shipped directly to Lawrence University’s Student Food Pantry on campus.

Donate Items in Person. Lawrence University staff, faculty, and students can drop off items in-person in the Diversity & Intercultural Center kitchen located in Memorial Hall. You can also arrange an appointment by contacting jessica.quintana@lawrence.edu. From there, we take inventory and keep the pantry stocked as supplies become available. Please refrain from dropping items off directly in the Pantry as we record inventory. We strongly request that you do not drop off individual items for the food pantry that have been opened or are expired.

Visit the Student Food Pantry Website on more ways to help and to access additional information.
