The Hospitality Center is one of the three programs, which is funded through the Dear Neighbor Fund. The Dear Neighbor Fund was initiated in 2010 in honor of former Student Affairs VP Lynn Tripp Coleman who graduated from Regis in 1977. The other two programs which are funded through The Dear Neighbor Program are: The Emergency Assistance Program and The Housing Program.
The Hospitality Center provides non-perishable food items to students who are in need. These food items are given out in a secure location in order to make sure that all feel comfortable about going to get help. Students in need have the ability to choose from both food and personal care items. These items can be picked up whenever they are needed. The Hospitality Center tries to provide healthy foods along with fruits and vegetables when they are available to be donated.
There are many ways in which you can help this program. Both monetary donations and food donations are accepted and appreciated. If you are making a monetary donation please donate it to The Dear Neighbor Fund. If you would like to donate personal items or food items please contact Kelly Golden.
