Thanks-for-Giving Tuesday

Eagles Show Gratitude

The Eastern Washington University community is taking a different approach to Giving Tuesday this year.

Thanks-for-Giving Tuesday 2022 kicks off today and runs through Dec. 2, providing multiple ways for our campus community to show gratitude by coming together to make life better for children, families, seniors and EWU students who are struggling during this time of runaway inflation and increased need.

While EWU will continue to gratefully accept gifts in support of scholarships and other university needs, our students, faculty and staff will be out in full force to raise food, school supplies and toys – and to also make some thank-a-thon calls to thank those who do so much for us.

How to Help

How to Help

Please support this Eastern Eagle community effort by helping with the following project(s)

Food Drive

A campus-wide food drive will support Second Harvest’s hunger-relief efforts. In our community, Second Harvest provides food to stock the shelves of the Cheney Food Bank, Feed Cheney and the EWU Student Food Pantry.
