Honoring our veterans

Let's come together and show our gratitude
This holiday season, Oklahoma State University is encouraging the Cowboy family to continue giving back to our veterans by donating to this year's Cowboys for Veterans Christmas Bag Program. Last year, thanks to a locally established philanthropy project established by the Newell Family, we had the opportunity to donate holiday gift bags for veterans in veterans centers and hospice care across the state. The campaign was a huge success.
OSU's Office of Student Veteran Success and other campus partners will continue the program this year by collecting donations of fully stocked gift bags to provide to the Claremore Veterans Home. We invite you to donate a fully stocked gift bag filled with essential items including clothing, toiletries and more. Please sign up to donate a bag at the link below so that we can ensure we have ample sizes for all of our recipients. Bag collection will conclude on Monday, Nov. 7 with a special drop-off event at the upper North Plaza of the Student Union at the OSU-Stillwater campus from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
