More than one thousand pounds of toiletries arrived on campus this week.
Thanks to the generosity of UCF parent Morlin Login (daughter Alexa is a sophomore), owner of Affinity Beauty Concepts, a cosmetics distributing company in South Florida, the Knights Helping Knights Pantry will be fully stocked with soap, shampoo and conditioner for months to come.
Login’s gift-in-kind, with an estimated value of $2,000, came about when he met UCF Foundation staff members during his daughter’s orientation last year.
After learning about the UCF Parent and Family Fund — which supports student programs like the Study Union, and the Knights Helping Knights Pantry — which provides food and toiletries for current students, Login knew he wanted to help. He gave a donation at orientation to the UCF Parent and Family Fund but was thinking bigger. Two pallets bigger, in fact.
Login’s donation to the Knights Helping Knights Pantry will ensure that Knights are taken care of inside and out.
