Allen University prepares students to return home with PPE care packages for their entire families

Allen University prepares students to return home with PPE care packages for their entire families
Posted By: Heather Turner on November 20, 2020

(Columbia, S.C.) – Allen University prepares to send its student body home while continuing the mission of the semester, maintaining a healthy environment. Every student at Allen University will leave on November 25 with a personal protective
equipment (PPE) care package for their entire immediate family.

The PPE care packages include ten washable cloth masks, one box of fifty disposable masks, one container of hand sanitizer, several individual hand sanitizing packets, disposable gloves, assorted non-perishable food items, and written materials outlining COVID -19 best practices.

The University’s initiative to prepare students with PPE for their entire families was rounded out with donations from The South Carolina Department of Health and Human Services and The Fairfield -McClelland Chapter of the National Black Presbyterian Caucus.

All students will undergo mandatory testing for COVID-19 on November 24, prior to departing for the semester. It has been a top priority of the institution to impress upon students the importance of COIVD-19 protocols.



“As students prepare to return home, it is imperative that students protect not only themselves but also their families by following CDC guidelines,” explained Allen University President, Dr. Ernest McNealey. Students will undergo COVID-19 testing prior to being re-admitted to residence halls or class upon their return in January.

PPE care packages will be distributed from the lower level of Arnett Hall, on the main campus of Allen University, on Thursday-Friday, November 19-20. For more information about Allen University, visit: www.allenuniversity.edu.

Allen University is a Christian liberal arts institution located in the capital city of Columbia, South Carolina. Allen provides an environment of academic excellence to heighten students’ chances of succeeding in a culturally diverse and economically global world. Allen maintains accreditation with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award baccalaureate and master’s degrees. The university also holds membership with the United Negro College Fund.
