Attention Lamar University! It is time for a student org competition! Lamar Service will be hosting part two of it's service drive series, the Cardinals Care Needs Drive to benefit Port Cities Rescue Mission from April 7-17, 2014.

Port Cities Rescue Mission has provided the community with a list of items it needs to run its many shelters in the area. A description of their goals and values is paraphrased in their own words below and more info can be found at the link.

Lamar Service is challenging LU to provide this organization with the supplies it needs so it can focus on serving the needy in the community. 

All are welcome and encouraged to donate what you can, but the student org or that earns the most points will be recognized alongside Lamar Honors Student Association (winner of the Fall Food Drive) at the Toast to Leadership Banquet and will own bragging rights going into the Fall. 

The items needed and the points each item is worth are listed on the printout at the link below. You are welcome to print it and fill it out as you collect donations. The forms will also be available in Setzer Student Center rm 212, where we ask that you turn in your donations.

If you have any additional questions, please call the Lamar University Office of Civic Engagement at 409-880-7284, Luke Harris at 409-880-8723, or Michael Wilkinson at 409-880-2395. You may also email us at or simply come by SSC rm 212. 

Thank you in advance for your generosity in supporting a worthy cause.

Here is the link to the items list: 

"The Port Cities Rescue Mission was created to rescue the poor, hungry and homeless of the Golden Triangle Community... who sees its Mission becoming to the homeless by offering shelter and services with dignity and compassion. At the same time the Mission seeks to provide opportunities for volunteers to be served and nurtured as they seek to serve."
