Charleston Virginia College Campus Holds Haiti Relief Event
Posted: Wednesday, March 17, 2010
Students and staff of the Virginia College location in Charleston, South Carolina, recently held a special event to generate relief for Haiti earthquake victims. The event included a parking lot sale and was deemed a huge success. In addition to Virginia College's staff and students conducting the sale, Campus President Tim Bush grilled hotdogs from the Salvation Army's meal truck. The school partnered with Bojangles, Schlotzsky's Deli and the Salvation Army for the event. Also, local radio station Z-93 was on site for a live remote broadcast from the school, inviting the public to the sale and to come and view the Salvation Army mobile kitchen and to see how it operates in helping to feed the victims of the disaster. People were also invited to come take a tour of the campus and speak with admissions associates if they were interested in enrolling for the upcoming term.
The sale generated over $900 and fifteen boxes of clothing and miscellaneous items were collected. The money and items were donated to Captain Anthony T. Juliana of the Salvation Army to aid in the relief efforts for the victims of the Haiti earthquake disaster.
