SUPPLIES AND BOOKS ACCEPTED THROUGH MARCH 17

Sigma Lambda Upsilon and the Student Ambassadors are collecting books and school supplies to aid programs for area youths through the Making A Difference Foundation.

The drive will continue through Thursday, March 17. Donation boxes will be located at the Campus Information Center; in front of the Student Ambassadors office; and at the front desks of Rogers, Gresham, Whitehurst and Powhatan residence halls.

The foundation is a nonprofit, volunteer-driven, community-based foundation whose mission is to improve educational and career opportunities for youth by juvenile mentoring through personal encouragement, tutoring, SAT preparation, college selection assistance, English as a second language, GED, LPT, Standards of Learning, job and college application assistance, financial scholarships, grants, school to work, job shadowing, training and placement. The ultimate goal is to help every student participant improve his/her self-esteem and potential for a happy, productive life.
