MSB-Plymouth Students Show Giving Spirit

Posted by on December 28, 2011

Students at the Minnesota School of Business-Plymouth exemplified the school’s ‘We Care’ mission during the 2011 holiday season. In total, students from several different programs, classes and groups raised nearly $2,500 for local charities and nonprofits.

Earlier in the month, massage therapy program chair Regina Hughes presented the Community Health Foundation of Wright County a check for nearly $1,200 for the building of a new hospice home in Buffalo, Minn. Massage therapy students raised the funds during massage therapy awareness week in late October.

Carrie Rowell’s HFS program used the week of Dec. 12-16 to benefit the Interfaith Outreach & Community Partners food shelf. The group collected just over $500 from soup and smoothie sales throughout the week.

Amy Harms Hoad’s global citizenship classes were also active on the fundraising front. Nearly $350 was totaled for the Golden Valley Humane Society, and $325 went towards wish lists for residents of the Minneapolis Children’s Hospital.

Finally, the newly formed MSB-Plymouth DECA group used peanut brittle sales to sponsor several families in need for IOCP. The group added $150 to the campuses fundraising efforts.

A grand total of $2,442.32 was raised for the various nonprofits and charities.
