Donation tables to be open for charity organization
March 14, 2013
UW-River Falls students will be working donation tables from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. on April 8 in area 170 on the first floor of the University Center. Donations will be gathered by students and distributed by the Hope Lutheran ELCA church to the Robin’s Nest Christian Home for children ages 0-18 in Montego Bay, Jamaica.
Donation items requested will be hygiene supplies, children’s books, elementary level educational supplies and cash donations of any denomination. Cash donations will go toward the current needs of supporting the daily basics of food, education and water for the children and provide an income for staff at the home.
Robin’s Nest ministers to the physical, mental, and spiritual needs of the children. Children find their way to Robin’s Nest through the Child Development Agency of Jamaica. The home provides a safe, healthy, and supportive environment for the children in need of their services. The UWRF students hosting the event are Jennifer Deiss, Maddie Halvorson, Chelsea Jannett, Lizzy Rodewald and Jeff Ruhl. Their goal is to run a successful persuasive campaign for a group project, as well as contribute to the Robin’s Nest foundation.
