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. 

The McIntyre Library's annual holiday fundraiser for the Hmong Mutual Assistance Association raised a total of $485. Individual contributions from library staff and others in the campus community enabled the HMAA to purchase more than 900 pounds of rice. In a letter of thanks, HMAA Interim Executive Director Yong Kay Moua wrote, "Your donation comes at a critical time when we especially need to help families with unanticipated food emergencies over the winter season. Due to increases in home heating and utility costs, an increasing number of families are registering with our agency to receive rice." Go to top of page
