Central Iowa Shelter Donations
Following years past, all four schools are working together to collect new or gently used adult coats, socks, hats, gloves and mittens for the Central Iowa Shelter & Services who will be on hand at the event to collect items. The mission of Central Iowa Shelter & Services is to provide low-barrier shelter, meals and support services at no cost to adults experiencing homelessness and to facilitate their move toward self-sufficiency.
Help us celebrate the final Hy-Vee Classic and show your Panther spirit!
These events are sponsored by the UNI Alumni Association, Panther Scholarship Club and the UNI Foundation.
