Student Gift

2013-2014 Student Gift

With the academic year just past the half way mark, the students have already raised more in the 2013-14 year than total raised all of last year. The Potsdam Awareness Week (PAW) raised at total of $1,160.37 up $179 from last year.

The students have kicked off the second semester with WinterFest, including Bear Pride Night, and SnowBall. They will be working on a Student Giving Appeal "Paw It Forward: Student Giving Challenge 20-14" in February, as well as the Mr./Ms. UNIVERSity Contest in March. Proceeds from all of the events and activities go to the Student Gift which is the Annual Fund for Potsdam (aka the Greatest Needs).
