They open twice a week, on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and have no restrictions on the number of times clients can take food. APOYO collects no personal data, and do not turn anyone away. They can also deliver food in emergency situations.

    APOYO welcomes donations of used clothing, appliances and household items, as well as some furniture, as space permits. All volunteers are welcome. They provide community service hours, and can offer student internships by arrangement with professors. If you need help, if you have items to donate, if you need community service hours, or if you have students who might benefit from working with a nonprofit organization that serves our local community, please visit their website!

  • Event Date Tuesday, May 21st from 9:30 am to 5:00 pm
    On Tuesday, May 21st, there will be a blood drive with the American Red Cross in SURC 137 A&B. We're also partnering with Pre-Med club, Rotaract club, and Arnold Air Society for this event.
    Our goal is to provide an opportunity for approximately 50 CWU students, staff and community members to donate. The American Red Cross (ARC) uses the donated blood to aid local hospitals, as well as hospitals around the country who experience tragedies. Most donated blood stays within Central Washington to help patients suffering from trauma, illness, and injury, while other donations will help during national emergencies. Approximately 39,000 units of blood are needed each day across the U.S, and you could be a part of fulfilling that need. Remember: one donation saves up to THREE lives.
