August projects for 100 Ways to Give



Some of our first 100 Ways to Give projects are winding up! Campus Police is accepting monetary donations through the end of the week to help In The Image provide shoes for elementary school students — just call 234-4910 and an officer will pick up your donation.

Here are some of the projects that have been organized for August:

  • The Counseling and Career Center is collecting backpacks and school supplies for Coit Creative Arts Academy students.
  • Equity Affairs and the Older Learner and Diversity Learning centers are teaming up to provide care packages for needy GRCC students.

A project to provide care package items for foster kids at D.A. Blodgett-St. John’s Home is continuing throughout the year — just bring donations to the Grants and Resource Development Department in the College Park Plaza-Annex.
