San Diego Campus Wins Contest, Makes $500 Donation to Boys & Girls Club
U.S. Colleges hosted a social media contest in December, challenging students at all five California locations to see who could raise the most awareness for their local Boys and Girls Club. To win the contest, students in the class had to share a post on social media and generate the most likes and shares. The San Diego campus took first place, winning a $500 donation to the Boys & Girls Club of Greater San Diego.
“I am proud of our San Diego students for their efforts to support such a worthy organization,” said Curtiss Speller, Director of Admissions at U.S. Colleges San Diego. “We hope this donation will help them support their staff and kids during these tough times.”
“The Boys & Girls Club is proud to partner with U.S. Colleges to Change Lives for San Diego Youth. The donation granted to us by the students will help ensure that the children who need us most are able to access our services. Currently, the Boys & Girls Club is open 10 hours daily to provide assistance with distance learning and enable parents to continue working while school districts remain closed,” said Kira Foody, Vice President of Development.
“U.S. Colleges launched the Cares campaign last year as a way to give back to the local community while engaging students in the process. To date, we have contributed $5,500 to local nonprofits throughout the country, including the Boys & Girls Club. Congratulations to the San Diego campus for winning this contest, and I look forward to the student enthusiasm for our next campaign,” said Dr. Fardad Fateri, President and CEO.
