‘Highlight the Need’ Drive for Salvation Army April 8-May 9
Omaha - In an effort to support the Salvation Army’s Back-to-School Backpack Program, the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Staff Advisory Council (SAC) has launched a campus campaign – “Highlight the Need”– to collect new highlighters of all colors and sizes for students in Omaha.
Faculty, staff, students and members of the community are encouraged to donate new highlighters at the UNO Bookstore, located on the first floor of the Milo Bail Student Center. The collection runs on campus Friday, April 8, through Tuesday, May 17.
The UNO Bookstore will sell highlighters four for $1; donations of new highlighters purchased off campus will also be accepted at the UNO Bookstore.
For the second consecutive year, UNO has engaged in a friendly competition with Creighton University. New to this year’s school supply drive is College of Saint Mary.
Each school's goal is to collect a specified number of a school supply. This year, UNO is collecting 5,000 highlighters.
Last year, UNO successfully reached its goal of collecting 5,000 new erasers for the Salvation Army’s Back-to-School Backpack Program.
For more information, contact SAC member Kim Kronschnabel at (402) 554-3497.
