Bellin College Care and Share Cupboard

We were thrilled to announce the opening of the Bellin College Care and Share Cupboard on September 6th 2023, a dedicated space on our campus aimed at supporting our students. The Bellin College Care and Share Cupboard is a resource designed to aid students in need of essential items. This cupboard is stocked with non-perishable food items, toiletries, scrubs, and other essentials. It is our way of ensuring that every member of our Bellin College family has access to the basic necessities to support their well-being.

This is an open resource for all students. We want you to feel open to use the cupboard whenever you need it. If you are running low on any food or household items and money is tight that week, visit the cupboard! Maybe you forgot something or don’t have time to run to the store, you can use the cupboard for that too! Our goal is for the Care and Share Cupboard to lessen your burdens and make things a little easier. 

The Cupboard is located in the lower level in room L18A. Students can visit the cupboard during regular college hours as many times as they need. We encourage students to take what they require. However, we kindly request that you be mindful of your fellow students, leaving enough for others. The cupboard will be restocked regularly. It is recommended to bring your own bag. It is important that all students who visit the Cupboard complete the exit survey using the QR code posted on the door. The survey allows us to know how frequently the cupboard is being used and what items are needed

“The Care and Share Cupboard is a space that is showing community in action. It is giving us the opportunity to showcase and to commit to our mission and values.” – Dr. Benjamin Rieth, Director of Student Affairs
