Centre volunteers help brighten Thanksgiving
RELEASED: November 27, 2008
"It was a great showing of positive student effort in our area, and the students' efforts will help many needy families in our community during the holiday season," says Patrick Noltemeyer, associate dean and director of community service and the Bonner Program.
Chase Warner '10, president of C.A.R.E., said that the group chose to work with the Salvation Army, and specifically the one in Danville, because of the contribution they could make to a community that has already given them so much.
"Centre and Danville consistently provide a safe, fun environment in which Centre students can learn...the least we can do is work with an organization that will allow us to give back to Danville's less fortunate," Warner says.
"If you calculate two cans per person in a family of four, that's more than 240 families served!" Warner says. "Centre students and the community have made a significant contribution to the cause!"
Students, faculty and staff may contact Warner or Noltemeyer for more information on sponsoring a child from the Angel Tree for the holidays.
