Lifting Up Lions

What is the Lifting Up Lions initiative?

We believe that no Albrightian’s social, academic, physical, or mental well-being should be limited by challenges related to financial or material resources. In light of this, the Student and Campus Life Division is hard at work to remove barriers to student success and health.

We encourage Albrightians to take advantage of these resources and opportunities, students should never feel that they may be judged for requesting assistance. The Lifting up Lions program has provided many items to our students such as warm clothing items, personal care products, textbooks, technology, and educational supplies.


What Do We Offer?

Winter Clothing

Coats, gloves, hats, and other warm clothing items are available in the Student and Campus Life suite in Selwyn Hall South.

Items typically available are pasta, rice, peanut butter, jelly, cereal, mac and cheese, canned goods, tuna, chicken salad, soups, canned fruit and vegetables, diced tomatoes, beans, lentils, chili, beef stew, egg mixes, and flour.
