The Owl's Closet

The Owl’s Closet is a donation-based collection and referral program for food, clothing, toiletries and other necessities for KSU students who are facing issues with homelessness and/or hunger. All supplies are based upon donations and will be available to students as long as supplies are continually received.


Clothing and Toiletries

Toiletries, towels and washcloths, blankets, pillows, coats and hats are always available for urgent needs. When students are in need of clothing and/or shoes, the C.A.R.E. Center maintains reciprocal relationships with community consignment shops. When clothing items are collected by the C.A.R.E. Center they are given to the consignment shops. In turn, the shops fulfill the clothing and footwear needs of students referred by the C.A.R.E. Center


Feed the Future

The C.A.R.E. Center, in conjunction with Staff Senate, operates the Feed the Future Program. There is a small stock of food for students who may be struggling between paychecks/financial aid checks or are homeless.

To receive Feed the Future Food:
  • Must be a current student (enrolled for classes during the semester you require assistance)
  • Number of visits per month are based on the availability of food and determined on a case by case bases by a C.A.R.E. Center team member.
  • Student ID is required at each visit

The pantry is open Mon-Fri from 8:30am to 4:30pm

For monetary donations, click 'Donate' and in the designation choices select “Other” and type "Feed the Future" in space provided.
