FGCU and the Ronald McDonald House Charities
During each of FGCU's CBE games, we will be collecting wish list items for the Ronald McDonald House Charities. The wish list items are things that are used in the houses everyday, but are currently running low on. The items with an asterisk denote the greatest need. Also, start collecting the pull tabs off aluminum cans because we will be collecting these as well. Ronald McDonald House takes these tabs and recycles them for money. The more tabs we collect the more we can help the charity.

The following items are on the wish list:
Store Gift Cards (From Publix, SweetBay, Target, etc.)
Frozen Main Dishes - Family Size (For stove top, microwave, Crockpot, etc.)
Bags of Frozen Vegetables
* Frozen/Refrigerated (Ready-to-Bake) Cookie Doughs
Frozen Pizza
Individual Frozen TV Dinners (Like Banquet, Swanson, etc.)
Frozen Bags of Mixed Fruit Whole Milk & Fat Free Milk (One Gallon Size.)
Fresh Fruit (Especially apples and bananas.)
Plastic Storage Containers w/Lids (Larger sizes.)
* Heavy Duty Trash Bags (13 gallon size/30 gallon size.)
Anti-Bacterial Counter Wipes
Laundry Bleach
Liquid Dishwashing Soap (by hand & for dishwasher!)
Paper Towels
Kleenex/Puffs Tissues
Bottles of Hand Gel Sanitizer

FGCU has been a strong supporter of the Ronald McDonald House Charities in the past and would like this to continue in the future. Please help the families in need by participating in this wish list drive. There will be collections at each of the three games.
