Message from the GU Red Alert Society
Red Alert is having a Washbag Appeal from Monday November 20th until Friday December 1st. The appeal urges the UofG community to donate washbags containing a variety of essential women’s hygiene products. The washbags will be donated to the Simon Community in Govanhill, where they will be distributed to homeless women joining them.
All information, including details on what to include in the washbags, can be found on the Red Alert Facebook page: GU Red Alert Society. Also feel free to send us a message through the Facebook page if you have a specific question! The filled washbags can be donated in the assigned box in the Murano Central Services building or at other points around the University.
Your contribution would be highly appreciated and could make a real difference to someone’s wellbeing!
