Phi Theta Kappa and the Honors Service Learning Class at Kansas City Kansas Community College are working to help two causes through an upcoming bake sale and supply drive.
The two service projects are to benefit the homeless and Victory Hills Senior Living. Among the items being collected in the supply drive are clothes, nonperishable food, thick socks, under garments, toothbrushes, toothpaste, dental floss, tissues, toilet paper, Band-Aids, Neosporin, soap, shampoo, cotton swabs, deodorant and baby wipes, among other items. A box will be in the Honors Office, Room 3600 until March 12 for donations.
In addition, those individuals who donate a new item will be included in a raffle. Raffle prizes include a $20 Scooters gift card, sweatshirts from the KCKCC Bookstore, a Vic & David’s Deli Card and much more. Tickets can also be purchased in Room 3600.
Daniel Monahan, a student in the Honors Service Learning Class, said the goal of the two events is to not only raise money, but to increase awareness within the community.
“People should participate to donate to the less fortunate,” he said. “It is also a good way to do something for others and not for yourself.”
The Bake Sale will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. March 12 in the Deli Area of Lower Jewell. Funds collected will go toward purchasing items to help the homeless as well as Victory Hills Senior Living. Donations can also be dropped off at the bake sale.
“It is important for students to get involved in projects like this,” Monahan said. “If they do, they will feel better about themselves for helping a good cause.”
