Raffle and Food Drive

Spring 2017 Raffle

For those who are new to ORAHEAD, you may not be aware that we host an ongoing raffle throughout the conference. Please consider bringing something to contribute to the conference raffle prize pool. Past contributions have included:

  • chocolate

  • institution swag
  • handmade items

Spring 2017 Food Drive

Food insecurity is a serious issue plaguing many students and has a dramatic impact on student success. Often, students rely on food banks or pantries at their colleges and universities. These extremely valuable resources are driving by donations which consistently fall short of the growing need. This year, ORAHEAD is hoping to start a new tradition by encouraging attendees to bring two nonperishable food items to donate to the hosting school’s food bank. If you plan to contribute, please refer to the Chemeketa Food Pantry’s list of requested food items. Thank you!
