Walk for Literacy: October 20th 2012

Walk for Literacy: October 20th 2012

Last year, the response to Haiti’s need was so great, all the donations we received could not be shipped due to lack of funds. Haiti is still far from being back on its feet so this year the money we raise will be used to pay the shipping cost for these goods.

This year registration will begin at 10:30 am and the walk begins at 11:00 am. We will meet in front of Douglass Campus Center and walk towards College Ave. The walk ends at Brower Commons where refreshments will be served.

Please print out a Pledge Sheet and a Registration Sheet or pick one up at our General Body Meetings: Wed 8-9 pm in Livingston Student Center, Room 109. Once you have completed it, bring it with you when you register.

If your organization would like to reach out for this event or others please email us at :
