Haywood Community College’s Criminal Justice Club recently donated funds to two Haywood County non-profit agencies. The Open Door Soup Kitchen and Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation, Inc. both received $250 from funds raised by students.
According to April Carroll, Open Door representative, “The need is huge this time of year when the shelter closes during the warm months. We are very grateful for this donation.”
Barbara Wolfe, HCC Criminal Justice Program Manager and Instructor, incorporates community service into the program continuously. “I want these students to know how important it is to give back to the community. We need to provide for those in need and help change their lives.”
Students held fundraisers throughout the year, some of which were a motorcycle ride, basket drawings, and t-shirt, candy bar, and discount card sales.
