GALESBURG—Carl Sandburg College TRIO Student Support Services is hosting a donation drive through Feb. 20 to raise items for the Knox County Humane Society. The drive leads up to a service project in which students will spend the day volunteering at the Humane Society on Feb. 21 as part of National TRIO Day 2014.
Donation boxes are set up in the TRIO SSS office (Room E136) and the information desks in Building D and the Student Center on the Main Campus in Galesburg. These are items on the Humane Society’s wish list:
— Purina dog and cat chow
— Dog and cat flea collars
— Paper towels
— Copy paper/office supplies
—Clumping kitty litter
— Large leaf/garbage bags
— Gently used blankets, towels and rugs
The TRIO SSS program is funded by a grant through the U.S. Department of Education and helps students in their pursuit of a bachelor’s degree by providing academic and advising assistance and encouraging student development during their time at Sandburg. TRIO participants must be a first-generation college student, meet income eligibility guidelines and be enrolled in a university studies program with the goal of transferring to a college or university to obtain a bachelor’s degree.
