Hundreds of items donated at holiday mixer


The inaugural CSUB Alumni Association Holiday Mixer was a huge success, with more than 100 tickets sold and 466 items collected for the campus food pantry.

The event was held Dec. 5 at The Padre Hotel’s rooftop lounge, Prairie Fire.

“Thanks to @csubalumni for donating 466 items last night at the Alumni Holiday Mixer,” Associated Students Inc. said on Instagram. “We appreciate everyone’s help to stock the @csubfoodpantry.”

The mixer featured an opportunity drawing for linen bags full of CSUB gear, student jazz musicians and an appearance by members of the university spirit squad. The food and hygiene items donated by guests were delivered to the CSUB Food Pantry, which opened in mid-September to address food insecurity concerns.

The pantry has been serving about 400 students per month.
