It was originally just for a project, but it turned into much more. Professional communication students were faced with the task of coming up with a fundraising idea that they could organize. Little did they know that their projects would be implemented into real life fundraisers for students to participate in at school. On Oct. 22 and 23, students can donate items for three different causes during the designated classes for each cause. Since many people are confused about what to donate when, here is an outline for the next two days:

 Who: Christian Care Center

What: Toilet paper, shampoo/conditioner, toothpaste/toothbrush/floss, fourth grade and under hygienic products (hair brushes, ties, clips, children shampoo) and other toiletries such as deodorant, soap, mouthwash.
