The Idaho State University Anderson Gender Resource Center’s Womyn’s Health and Baby U Club is asking for donations of baby, child and maternity clothes for a fundraiser to be held Jan. 27 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the second annual ISU Parent Resource Fair in the Pond Student Union Ballroom. Donated articles of clothing can be taken to Gravely Hall, Room 117. The club can also arrange for donation pick-ups.

The club is dedicated to taking a critical look at women’s health and illness as well as helping student parents balance the demands between raising a family and going to school.

The club invites the public to join it to spread information about services available to women and parents at ISU and throughout the community. All ISU students, faculty and staff, and the general public are invited to participate whether they have children or not.

The Anderson Center at Idaho State University serves as the focal point on campus for the consideration of gender issues.

“In our efforts, we are especially guided by the ideal of diversity, which allows us to envision a future free of the limitations imposed by our culture's standard definitions of gender and other categories of difference,” said Jesse Call-Feit, AmeriCorps member at the Anderson Center.

If you would like more information about the Womyn’s Health Club, the Parent Resource Fair or the Anderson Center contact Jesse Call-Feit at 282-2805 or gndrctr@isu.edu.
