Throughout the summer, IBMC College campaigned newly enrolled students to donate a school supply or $5 to its School Supply Drive to help area children get the supplies they need to head back to school.
Three northern Colorado IBMC campuses in Fort Collins, Greeley and Longmont raised an estimated $675 worth of school supplies and donations from May 31 through August 7. IBMC participates in school supply drives on an annual basis, but extended its donation period this year in order to make a bigger impact for our area schools. Supplies donated included pencils, pens, notebooks, notebook paper, markers, highlighters and folders.
The school supply drive not only helped area school-aged children, it also helped incoming IBMC College students afford to enroll in the College by waiving their registration fee of $50 if they donated to the cause. Many prospective students were excited to learn that their money would be benefiting the children of their local communities.
Three local school supply drives benefited:
- Fort Collins, Salvation Army School Supply Drive
- Greeley, Greeley-Evans School District 6 School Supply Drive
- Longmont, St. Vrain Valley School District’s Crayons to Calculators Drive
