Cans collected for Skidmore Cares 2011

2011 collection assignment list

Skidmore Cares, launched in 2006 by President Glotzbach and Marie Glotzbach to enhance the meaning of the annual campus holiday gathering at Scribner House, has grown into a program that makes a significant contribution to area families in need.

Skidmore Cares culminates in December, when food and school supplies will be collected at Scribner House during the Holiday Open House on December 11. The Skidmore Cares sleigh will be in place in front of Scribner House from Friday, December 9, through Sunday, December 11, for community members to drop off donations

In 2010, Skidmore Cares collected more than 1,600 food items, nearly 1,100 school supplies and generous cash donations for three local nonprofits.
