Seniors' Secret Santa raises more than $4,300
"Seniors' Secret Santa," a holiday fundraising project sponsored by the UW-Eau Claire student organization Career Services-Charitable Outreach, raised $4,349.22 during November and December to benefit area seniors in need during the 2006 holiday season. UW-Eau Claire faculty, staff and students contributed to the project through participation in the Schofield Showdown, a penny collection/competition between offices in Schofield Hall, which raised $933.86; individual donations totaling $1,898; and a candy cane sale that raised $17.36. Winners in the Schofield Showdown were Purchasing in first place, the Registrar's Office in second place and Accounting in third place.
The funds raised through "Seniors' Secret Santa" were matched with $1,500 from area grocery chain Mega Pick 'N Save. The chain then used the total raised to purchase and distribute grocery debit cards to area seniors identified as having extremely limited financial means.
