Today is Giving Tuesday logo

In this season of giving College of Marin (COM) hopes you will join in making COM students #1 on #GivingTuesday.

To increase access to healthy food and address food insecurity on our campuses COM Cupboard was launched in fall 2016. In partnership with ExtraFood and the San Francisco-Marin Food Bank, COM Cupboard provides a variety of rescued baked goods from local Marin County stores and restaurants as well as fresh produce, grain, and protein items at the fresh produce stand. Already, hundreds of COM students who lack resources have benefitted from this resource.

#GivingTuesday is a global giving movement inspiring people to act to improve their communities, give to the charities in which they believe, and make the world a better place to live.

This year our goal is to raise $10,000 by December 31 to support COM Cupboard, student scholarships, or the area of greatest need.
