Donate Now to Nicholls Can

The Nicholls Can project is a university-wide food drive that contributes to Mom’s Pantry and the 6 food banks in the Bayou Region.

Since 2012, Nicholls Can has collected and donated nearly 130,000 items to our area food banks.  The need for our assistance year has never been greater and the safety of our Nicholls’ family is an utmost priority. To limit exposure to one another, Nicholls Can will be collecting online this year. We will be utilizing an Amazon Wish list for food item purchases. You can find this list by clicking on the link provided. We also welcome monetary donations cash or checks. Monetary donations may be delivered to the Nicholls Can representative in the department of your choice or mailed to the Department of Art. A small monetary donation of just a few dollars can go along way when given to a food bank to purchase items that are in need.
