NATIONAL WORLD WAR II MEMORIAL FUND
The Freshman Seminar: Heroes is raising money for the National World War II Memorial Fund. The group has put donation buckets in several locations around the community, including Harvest Foods, Wal-Mart, and Dodge’s Store. On campus, there will be donation buckets in the Mabee Administration Building and in the Seay Student Center. This group is also selling raffle tickets for $1 to win prizes such as gift cards, phone cards, movie passes and a tank of gas. The grand prize is a $50 gift certificate to Morgan’s. These freshmen decided to raise money for this cause because they have been made aware of the call for appreciating what the veterans of World War II sacrificed for this country. Show your gratitude to the veterans by purchasing a raffle ticket or contributing to the donation buckets.
