19th Annual Fundraiser for Hmong Mutual Assistance Association

The McIntyre Library Staff Association is conducting its annual collection to benefit those served by the Hmong Mutual Assistance Association (HMAA) rice pantry.

Last year we raised enough donations to purchase 4826 pounds of rice,  making a difference in the lives of our Eau Claire area neighbors.  A donation of $20 can feed a family of 5 or 6 for a month.

New this year, in addition to cash or check, you can donate through Paypal.

To donate cash or checks:
  • Checks should be made payable to McIntyre Library Staff Association.
  • Donations can also be dropped off at the library reference desk or in a donation box location on the 1st floor of the library next to the New Book Shelf. 
  • Donations can be submitted via mail or campus mail to:
    • Daniel Hillis, McIntyre Library, UW-Eau Claire, Eau Claire, WI 54702
For more information, see our HMAA Fundraiser guide or contact Jill Markgraf
