We are in the season of giving thanks. For many, giving thanks also means thinking about how we can pay it forward and support others. I have one answer for you….please support our students who are most in need by masking up for Suffolk CARES.

The Suffolk CARES program provides emergency assistance grants to undergraduate, graduate and law students who are facing unexpected financial hardships. The Suffolk Food Pantry is also part of the Suffolk CARES program. You can purchase a reusable Suffolk University, Suffolk Law or Suffolk Rams mask for $10. The net proceeds go directly to Suffolk CARES. You can order a mask by texting “sumask” to 71-777 or visit: https://app.mobilecause.com/vf/SUMASK to view designs and order.

And of course, wearing a Suffolk-branded mask helps promote the University as you do your part to protect your health and the health of others. So when you Mask Up for Suffolk CARES you are masking up for students and the broader community.

And by the way, Margie and I can personally vouch for the fact that these are very comfortable masks!
