Even with no kickball, UNCG still filled the truck

The Faculty vs. Staff kickball game, which was postponed till the fall semester, was expected to be a big contributor to the cause. Still, Staff Senate collected animal food, blankets, bowls, paper products, cleaning supplies and other miscellaneous items for the shelter, as well as cash donations in the amount of $783. Staff Senate grilled hotdogs and served soft drinks that day, as people dropped of their donations of items or money. Many had made donations in the boxes throughout campus.

“We would like to thank everyone for your generosity and compassion for the animals,” said Jeannie Lasley, UNCG Staff Senate Service Committee co-chair.

The committee contributed one more great service project before the semester ended. They held a clean up day at the Sullivan Garden located in the Greensboro Downtown Greenway near Lee Street. They pulled weeds, tidied the area and put down fresh mulch.
