With our new process changes, we have an increased need from clients.
At this time, we are seeking primarily monetary donations due to potential contamination of physical food items. If you are able to give, please do so through the MSU Alumni Foundation link here and designate your gift to the Bounty of the Bridgers.
Donations of in-need items such as pasta, shelf-stable milk cartons, peanut butter, bagged sliced bread, and cereal can be dropped off at the Office of Health Advancement.
