MLK Week of Service - Thank You

Update and Results Report from MLK Week of Service activities!

We want to send out a huge THANK YOU to those faculties, staff and students who participated in activities for the AmeriCorp MLK Week of Service in January. Our appreciation especially goes to the Trades Academy Pre-apprenticeship Prep (TAPP) program for sending out 10 students to help with our Habitat for Humanity event and Instructor, Joshua Kollman. They were awesome and enthusiastic about helping (even in the mud and rain!) and it made the day so much more successful! You guys are awesome!

Also, a special THANK YOU to the students at Northwest Career & Technical High School who took the challenge from their Principal to each donate one dollar for our Craft Supply and Game Drive for Tacoma Rescue Mission's Adam Street Youth Event. Your contribution was admirable and heartwarming! With these donations, they were able to donate 5 Wii games that were highly desired by the children at the Mission! We arrived there with boxes of board games, card games, craft supplies, books, Leapster/games, movies and much more! A special thanks to Joyce Loveday, Laurie Banaszak, John Ruiz & his bride, Sky Chafee (UWT), Amanda Sanchez (TCC), Stacey Hill (CPTC student) & her children who came to play, contribute and support the success of this Youth Celebration Event! And thank you to our Associated Student Government for backing this drive and making it possible!
