SGA Activity to Support Miriam's House

From Miriam's House: "Since 1994, Miriam's House has worked to end homelessness in this community through providing comprehensive programs to empower families made vulnerable by homelessness.  We know that housing is the first step in building stronger families and communities.  We work along side each homeless family to place them into safe and affordable housing in the community where they can rebuild their lives with hope and dignity."

The SGA is having a donation drive to support this local program.  Please join in helping to provide the program with supplies.  A table is set up at the entrance of the college to collect your donations.  You can pick up a "wish list" from the table to assist you when planning your donation.
