Due to the COVID-19 crisis, Grover Essentials has modified its service to provide pre-made bags to our customers. Current USG students, faculty, and staff will be able to pick up bags from campus after signing up for a defined time slot. Time slots are available Tuesday-Friday, 9AM-6PM. We ask that customers limit their visits to one every 2 weeks. During their one visit, customers may select 2 bags: 1 Food Bag and 1 Toiletry Bag OR 2 Food Bags.
Please note Grover Essentials will remain open for appointments during COVID-19 regardless of USG's status; for weather related closures Grover Essentials will follow USG's weather decision for pickups. If you appointment is cancelled due to weather please email email@example.com
To sign up, visit csef.timetap.com. Once you sign up and complete all the necessary steps, you will be sent a confirmation email containing your assigned locker and its code. Please bring the email and a photo ID to Building III on campus during your chosen time slot. You may proceed to the lockers following the signs in the lobby of Building III. We ask that customers look through the content of their bag and leave items they do not want behind in their locker before closing it.
Visitors, you will be sent an anonymous intake and satisfaction survey. We understand you may have comments, concerns, or other feedback regarding the new to go system. This form is a chance to let your voice be heard. All feedback is reviewed carefully.
Cash Donations to Grover Essentials: Grover To Go are welcome, please be sure to indicate "Grover Essentials Fund" with your donation.
You may also Donate items via our Amazon Wishlist. All orders will be delivered to the USG campus, where they will be placed directly in the Grover Essentials inventory for distribution.
