  • Right now our most pressing need is paper bags!  We would like something to give to students who use the space to carry their food in.  If you have paper bags to donate, please drop them off at the Kodiak Cave during business hours or contact Danielle Gohr, Kodiak Cave Intern, to arrange pick up/drop off at other times.
  • If you would like to make a tax deductible, financial donation, we are working with the Foundation and will share a link when it is available.
  • We have created an Amazon Wish List of specific items we are looking for! 
  • We will begin accepting in person food donations in Winter Quarter – more information to come!
