Press Release – For Immediate Release
Grand Junction, Colorado – IntelliTec College students participated in a new community outreach activity by feeding the hungry at a local homeless shelter shortly after Christmas.
The Student Ambassadors club at IntelliTec College came together to volunteer at the Homeward Bound homeless shelter on December 28th. 12 students, 3 of their family members and Dean of Students Shelby Maloney provided, prepared and served dinner for 150 people.
Maloney explains that, “because this was such a rewarding and enjoyable experience for everyone, the club will be voting on making it a regular quarterly event.”
The Homeward Bound shelter event is not the first charitable work the Student Ambassadors have participated in. They have held several events to help those in need, including a Halloween Haunted House fundraiser where they collected nonperishable food items for IntelliTec’s annual Thanksgiving Food Drive.
With the emotional rewards that come from volunteering and community involvement, the Student Ambassadors are wasting no time in getting back to what they do best. Next they plan to host a Penny War fundraiser for The American Heart Association, just in time for Valentine’s Day. An event to support autism research and awareness is also being planned.
About IntelliTec’s Student Ambassadors Club
The Student Ambassadors was established a mere 6 months ago by Admissions Representative Carole Earnshaw and Dean of Students Shelby Maloney. Maloney says the students are campus leaders “dedicated to serving IntelliTec College students of the past, the present and the future…and to enhance the campus experience and the college’s contributions to the community.”
Ms. Maloney hopes for IntelliTec College to increase their community involvement efforts “to make a positive impact on the welfare of our community, to enhance our students’ educational experience, and to familiarize local employers with the excellence and dedication of our students.”
Student Ambassadors – Just One Part of a Campus That Cares
The Student Ambassadors join several other campus groups that have also been involved in charitable events such as: a Bone Marrow Donor Drive, the March of Dimes’ “March for Babies” event, the Susan Komen “Walk for the Cure, breast cancer awareness event” and a “Stuff a Stocking” event to provide toys for children of students and various health fairs.[boilerplate about-grand-junction]
