Holiday Donation Drive

This holiday season the Staff Senate is encouraging the Mason community to support four organizations in our local communities. These organizations were chosen by staff at the October Staff Senate General Meeting.

When making a purchase through any of the Amazon Wishlists below, please write “George Mason University Staff Senate Holiday Drive” in the notes field during checkout. Thank you for your generosity!

  • Food and toiletry contributions to the Patriot Pantry, which is available to Mason’s students, can be made using this Amazon Wishlist or by bringing nonperishable food and toiletry items to your campus’s holiday party.
  • Donations of toys and supplies to Inova Children’s Hospital can be made through this Amazon Wish List or you can make a monetary donation through the Staff Senate fundraising pageDonations will only be accepted if directly shipped via Amazon.
  • If you love the dogs and cats of our local community, support Lucky Dog Animal Rescue in Arlington through purchases on this Amazon Wishlist, or bring items to your campus’s holiday party.

Items can include canned veggies, dry and hot cereals, canned chicken and tuna, canned beans, dry beans, cooking oil, dry mashed potato mix, canned soups, ramen, canned fruit, pasta noodles and sauce, and bagged or box rice.  More information is available here.
