The Northwest University Bookstore is currently running a promotion called "Hoodies for the Homeless." For every gently-used sweatshirt donated, students will receive 25% off a new sweatshirt during the promotional period. We are partnering with the Lighthouse ministry team to collect and distribute donations. The student who brings in the most items will win a FREE NU sweatshirt from our "white hot" or "core" selections! Promotion ends November 22nd at 4:00pm.

The students of Northwest University are partnering with World Vision to help provide basic personal hygiene necessities for those in our community affected by poverty and homelessness in an initiative called, “NU Gives.” You can help us reach out to those who need a message of encouragement and hope.

At the end of the night, many students shared how blessed they felt by the experience.” -David Kimball, Northwest University Student

Later on that day, Northwest University students will gather to take the kits to downtown Seattle, where in partnership with the Union Gospel Mission, they will be handing them out to the homeless…
