PRSSA’s Philanthropy Efforts

This year our Philanthropy Committee is putting its efforts towards UNICEF, along with a few other clients, and we wanted to share with you a little bit more about what UNICEF is and why we are excited to be working with them.

To start off, for those people who do not know what UNICEF is, it’s an organization that helps protect the health and rights of children. According to the UNICEF website UNICEF believes that nurturing and caring for children are the cornerstones of human progress. Its goal is to work with others to overcome the obstacles that poverty, violence, disease and discrimination place in a child’s path.

PRSSA has decided to help the UNICEF group on our campus by putting out “Trick or Treat” boxes for coins and change at fraternities, sororities and other places around campus to help raise money for UNICEF. We are hoping to get official UNICEF boxes, but if that doesn’t happen in time, we will get creative and decorate our own shoe boxes. We are looking forward to visiting the multiple fraternities and sororities durring their dinner hours to talk about what our goals are for this coin drive and to officially ask for their help. We are planning to distribute the Trick or Treat boxes on Monday, October 24th.

From there we will see what kinds of opportunities we have for our UNICEF boxes. Either we will be leaving the boxes in their houses or we will take them with us. After Halloween we will be picking the boxes back up are hoping for good results so that we can better assist UNICEF and their efforts.
