MSUCorps Donates Items to Eagle Essentials

Morehead State University

MSUCorps and the Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) teamed up to donate items to Eagle Essentials, which helps students in need. 

The two AmeriCorps programs, MSUCorps and AmeriCorps Seniors Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) donated 74 bottles of shampoo, 140 bottles/bars of body wash, 400 toothbrushes, 50 tubes of toothpaste, 35 sticks of deodorant, several twin sheet sets, blankets, pillows and other basic necessities. 

Located in room 251 of the Adron Doran University Center (ADUC), Eagle Essentials provides non-perishable food items, personal hygiene products and school supplies to MSU students free of charge, no questions asked. Students need only present their MSU ID and an Eagle Essentials attendant will present them with a list of available items.

Once a student has made their selections, the attendant will discreetly bag the items for the student. Eagle Essentials has a satellite location at 203 Ginger Hall. Students can also learn more about programs like the SHARE fund and the Eagle Emergency Loan Fund, which provides financial assistance to students in crisis.  

"Part of our mission here at Regional Outreach and Education is to engage Morehead students in community service activities," said Helisha Tuerk, associate Director of the RSVP. "It gives us great pleasure to provide Morehead State University students with basic college essentials. Our desire is to help foster a sense of community on campus and to help the students feel that we are a family here at Morehead State University and we take care of our family. We want to help them succeed. They are our future and we want all Eagles to soar high."
