Give a Mask, Get a Mask campaign gives over 500 free masks to students
The Office of Advancement has been engaging in a Give A Mask, Get A Mask campaign, which has been a big success. The office will be distributing 500 free masks to students over this week, and bins of masks sponsored by alumni, parents and friends will be sent to departments across campus.
Where students can get free masks:
- Center for Business Outreach
- Center for Student Development
- Health Services
- McKillop Library – circulation desk
- Mercy Center for Spiritual Life
- Nursing Department
- Office of Academic Affairs
- Office of Community Service
- Office of Residence Life
- Office of Student Affairs
- Office of Student Life
- Rogers Recreation Center
The Give A Mask, Get A Mask campaign has raised over $8,000 for the Mercy Emergency Relief Fund, which was established several years ago as a way to support the Salve Regina community and the University in times of need due to extraordinary circumstances.
The Mercy Emergency Relief Fund has become a critical source of funding to bridge the financial gap that many of Salve Regina’s undergraduate students are facing during this coronavirus pandemic. It can be considered a ‘helping hand’ to assist with technology, tuition, wellness and other critical needs that may arise.
There are still masks available to purchase through the Give a Mask, Get a Mask campaign. When a donor buys one mask for themselves, a free mask will be donated to a Salve Regina student. The Office of Advancement is asking donors to share selfies in their masks on social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook using the hashtag #HeartofSalve.
Alumni, parents and friends show us their masks from the Give A Mask, Get A Mask Campaign. #HeartofSalve.
