D.C. Metro Area Pop-Up Pantry for graduate students launches
From: Virginia Tech D.C. Metro Black Caucus
As the holiday season approaches, our motto Ut Prosim (The I May Serve), becomes more meaningful and critical to our purpose as an institution. We want to prioritize student development and support both student mental and physical health, in addition to fostering an environment of empowerment. In line with this mission, we are introducing the inaugural D.C. Metro Area Pop-Up Pantry event for graduate students.
Visit the pantry
The pantry offers food, toiletries, and clothing free to all Virginia Tech graduate students in the D.C. metro area.
- Date: Thursday, Nov. 2
- Time: 2:30 - 5:30 PM
- Location: Northern Virginia Center, Room 471
Pop-up events will occur monthly and be advertised to all D.C. metro area and virtual VT students through the weekly D.C. area graduate student newsletter, flyers and social media posts.
