Staff Senate and MSU students fundraise for DVCC
Minot State University Staff Senate and a student group in the College of Business' leadership development initiative fundraised for the Minot Domestic Violence Crisis Center in April. The two MSU entities designated their financial contributions to furnish an apartment in DVCC's transitional living apartments.
MSU Staff Senate spearheaded a silent auction April 8-12. On May 13, MSU Staff Senate members presented a $1,688 check to DVCC.
"Staff Senate was proud to turn over $1,688 raised during a silent auction to the Domestic Violence Crisis Center. The money will be used to furnish an apartment in the new transitional living apartment complex that broke ground May 13," Julie Keller, who chaired the silent auction, said. "DVCC lost its transitional living apartments during the 2011 flood and MSU Staff Senate felt this was a way to give back to the community."
The student group gave $503, and canned goods and toiletries, to DVCC. The CoB leadership development initiative, funded by an endowment from alumnus Roger Looyenga, was established to help business students develop a better understanding of self-awareness, self-management, social awareness and relationship management.
Minot State University is challenging its campus, community, alumni and friends to complete a service project in honor of its 100 years of service. MSU Staff Senate was the first campus entity to join the "Power of 100" challenge. For more information about "Power of 100", visit www.minotstateu.edu/100/power_of_100.shtml.
