Human Services Students Raise Nearly $3,000 for Working Poor

Students in a human services class at Pennsylvania College of Technology hosted an event on campus in November that raised $2,968 for an international cause.

Fourteen students, all enrolled in the course Community and Organizational Change, hosted a Ten Thousand Villages Festival Sale, offering fair-trade handcrafted goods from around the world.

Fair trade enables the artisans to earn a fair wage and provides opportunity for a higher quality of life.

The three-day sale gave students firsthand experience in organizing an event that raises awareness of a need and helps to provide resources to fulfill the need.
