Good News around WCU

Giving Back

GiftsKelly and KennyCampus employees participated in many volunteer projects during November and December. A highlight was the annual wish list for children in foster care served by Bethany Christian Services.  These families are in a low income area and the extra gifts make a big difference for children and the foster parents.  Employees from all over campus and some students shopped for the wishes with over 100 gifts filling the van to capacity.  Pictured here is the van full of gifts along with one of our students, Kelly, with Kenny from the agency. This project is coordinated by the Office of Service-Learning & Volunteer Programs.
