HCC takes part in campus-wide challenge for Red Cross

Halifax Community College has joined in the Red Cross Heroes Campaign, which is a grassroots fundraising effort that takes place during the month of March. Monies raised stay in designated counties. For the HCC campus, this means that donations will benefit Halifax and Northampton counties.

 

The challenge began March 1 and other colleges are participating including Nash Community College, Edgecombe Community College and North Carolina Wesleyan. The minimum each college is challenged to raise is $1000. At stake—the 2010 Hero College trophy that will be presented to the college that raises the most money.

 

HCC President, Dr. Ervin V. Griffin Sr. made the first gift to the campaign. All faculty, staff and students are encouraged to give to the cause.

 

Individuals can contribute cash at the HCC Cashier’s window in Building 300, specifying “Red Cross.” Personal checks should be made payable to the Red Cross and delivered to Dean of Student Services & Enrollment Management Barbara Bradley-Hasty also in Building 300. The college’s Student Government Association is selling tickets to help raise money for the activity. Contact the organization at (252) 536-7298 for more information.
