Julie L., a staff member, told us, “This year’s ‘Tis The Season fundraiser brought in a total of $31,318.05 for local charities!!! This is almost $10,000 more than was raised last year! The charities that benefited from these efforts were: NANA’s House, Colonial Youth and Family Services, Holiday Love, Sunrise Fund, Campus Haiti Relief, Island Harvest and Madonna Heights.”
Particularly AWESOME is that “The entire campus community contributed to these efforts. The Campus Residences Civic Engagement and Service Committee sponsored the first ever Rockin’ RHD Coffee House event, in which RHDs and other professional staff performed musical acts and donated handcrafted artwork. Hall Councils and RAs were an integral part of the fundraising initiative, and provided service auctions and programs to help raise money for the local charities.” Way to go! Yay for all who were involved – what a fabulous accomplishment!
