The Francis Marion University Office of Student Affairs, in conjunction with the Student Government Association and the University Programming Board, are sponsoring “Changing Lives: A Patriot Campaign for Hurricane Relief.”
From Sept. 19 to Oct. 19, the Office of Student Affairs will coordinate this effort to raise money to provide relief for the victims of Hurricane Katrina. Student organizations are encouraged to participate in this campus-wide effort by “purchasing” a five-gallon bottle that will be placed in the Smith University Center throughout the 30-day campaign.
To participate in the campaign, a student organization must make an initial $10 donation, which will be placed in the organization’s bottle. Throughout the campaign, participating organizations may host fundraising events, make individual donations, seek sponsors, and develop other creative fundraising methods. All funds will go in the organization’s bottle, with the entire amount from each bottle going to the American Red Cross for hurricane relief.
For more information, contact Darryl Bridges, dean of students, at 843-661-1182.
