Community Partnership is an integral pillar of Retriever Essentials’. It is through many offices and departments across the campus that Retriever Essentials is able to collect and distribute food items, personal care products, and meals swipes. Our partners support our efforts to meet the students where they are in order to ensure their well-being and success. One such partner is OCA Mocha. OCA Mocha is a shared, multi-purpose space that fosters ongoing engagement between UMBC and its neighboring communities. On the Giving Day, Thursday, Feb 27th at 12 pm come and join the Retriever Essentials team and its partners over a cup of coffee to support the various ways we all serve the UMBC community. Make a gift to Retriever Essentials and our partners to show your commitment to and care for your fellow UMBC members.
