Record-breaking year for Loyalist PR's community fundraising efforts

This has been a record-breaking year for community fundraising in the Post-Graduate Public Relations Program here at Loyalist. Last semester, students raised more than $15,000 for the United Way of Quinte with its first-ever Campus Truckload Sale.

This semester, students raised an additional $3,500 for such organizations as Make-a-Wish Foundation, Kids Help Phone, Plainfield Community Homes, Fixed Fur Life, Salvation Army relief efforts in Japan, Quinte Arts Council and Quinte Conservation.

In addition, student teams gathered more than 1,600 kilograms (that's 3,520 pounds!) of food for the Gleaners Food Bank. Wow - way to go, everyone! You've made an entire college campus proud this year!
