The Women's Campus Club (WCC) Grant Application process, which normally opens in late August and closes in October, will be delayed this year. The UH Thrift Shop was closed unexpectedly from September 2018 to early April 2019. This led to greatly reduced thrift shop proceeds. Therefore the WCC will delay the grant cycle this year. We will notify the University community when we are able to proceed with a special grant cycle. We appreciate your patience and your patronage of the thrift shop at its new location!
