Stuff a Cruiser for Families at the Holidays

November, 2016
  • QCC officer dressed as Santa for Stuff a Cruiser

Counseling Services and the QCC Campus Police are teaming together this year to challenge the QCC community to Stuff a Cruiser for families.

For more than 17 years, the Counseling Services office has sponsored Be An Angel. This year, to honor the collaboration with the QCC Campus Police Department, they will start a new tradition, Stuff a Cruiser. This will be an outdoor gathering, where faculty, staff and students can bring a new, unwrapped toy, gift card or movie tickets for a Feed-A-Family child.

The event will provide students and faculty with a short break in their hectic pre-final days and serves to remind us all of the simple joy of giving.

Stuff a Cruiser will continue as a support program to the college’s Feed a Family Program, which provides holiday meals to needy families in the QCC family. Each year the program tries to meet the holiday requests for about 100 or more families.

The recipients also will receive a food gift certificate to purchase the holiday meal of their choice, and toys for their children will be provided by the Stuff a Cruiser program.

Please take some time to join us and QCC Police for some hot cocoa and a small token of our appreciation. Your participation during this time benefits an amazing community. Event times are as follows:

  • December 6: 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Downtown Campus lobby, Federal Street.
  • December 7: 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Main Campus, at the flag poles.
  • December 8: 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Southbridge Campus, front lobby.

If you cannot join us on these days, please feel free to donate at one of the drop boxes in Room 162A, Fuller Center or with the QCC Campus Police Department by December 9.

For more information, contact Tina Wells, twells [at] qcc.mass.edu. If you wish to make a monetary donation, make a check out to QCC Feed-A-Family and place in Box 66 or Box 144 in the mail room.

Gracious giving and community support have sustained and enhanced this wonderful QCC tradition of Feed a Family for more than 30 years.
