Thanksgiving Food Drive: Turkey Baskets It's that time of year again. When families get together, and celebrate the things that they are thankful for. Students of Western Oregon University have historically been able to help support the mission of the Ella Curran Food Bank by providing supplies for Thanksgiving meals to families who may not have been able to purchase them otherwise. The Residence Hall Association has sponsored the Turkey Basket program that provides those supplies for over a decade. We are asking for your support in making this the most successful year yet. Here's how you can help: If you are a member of a club, organization, department, or a student here at Western Oregon the Residence Hall Association would love your support. We are asking everyone to give in anyway they can! We'd like to challenge groups to sponsor a turkey basket. All donations can be dropped off in the South Sister Annex, which is located under Valsetz Dining Hall.

The basic concepts of "Connections" presented and discussed during these sessions can help us in our daily contact with students and co-workers, as well as with our family and friends. There has never been a time when positive, effective communication has been in greater demand! The "Connections" training will explore the role we each hold in this important process. The "Connections" training consists of three (3) sessions, three (3 hours each), with participants attending one session per week.
