generously to holiday fundraisers
• Over the past 15 years
Women in Higher Education has sponsored the Holiday Gift Program, which
assists low-income, nontraditional-age, and traditional-age UW-Eau Claire
students with families. This year student-parents requested a total
of 102 gifts, and the WHE program made the holidays better for 45 families.
In addition, $1,160 in cash was collected, which was converted to gift
certificates for groceries. Co-Chairs MaryEdna Hagen and Patti See thank
all faculty and staff members for their contributions.
• The Seniors' Secret Santa
fundraiser to purchase grocery debit cards for seniors in need, sponsored
by the student organization Career Services Charitable Outreach, raised
a total of $2,437.81. Included in that total was $667.81 raised through
the Schofield Penny War. Congratulations go to (1) the Business Office
for the best contribution ratio (they will receive a welcome back potluck
early this semester); (2) the Chancellor’s Office for raising
the most money, $199.26 (with help from those who contributed silver/dollars
to their jar); and (3) Strategic Planning, which is being recognized
as most in the RED. Mega Pick 'n Save matched all Seniors' Secret Santa
funds raised. Career Services Charitable Outreach thanks all who made
donations to this effort.
