TRiO says, ‘keep making a difference’

The TRiO programs send appreciation for the creative efforts of more than 30 volunteers for Make a Difference Day. Volunteers crafted about 170 holiday cards for area veterans in just three hours!  Thanks to student workers Brianna Fischer and Rose Hiebl’s direction and advice, (with help from Pinterest), all cards were both beautiful and personal. Each year, the Upward Bound program sends approximately 1,000 holiday cards to disabled veterans. Thanks to the UWGB Make a Difference Day, there are only 870 cards yet to make. If you are interested in helping, two more card-making dates are scheduled: From 2 to 4:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 18, and 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 3. Locations to be determined. Stop by the TRiO office at SS-1721 (across from the Dean’s office) if you want to help and these dates don’t meet your needs.
