Entry is by a donation of money or needed supplies. Some of the items on the Women’s Center donation list include non-perishable food, laundry supplies, toiletries, bedding, diaper wipe, trash bags and other household items. The event will feature family-friendly activities such as face painting, a silent auction and a chance to win a ride on the Zamboni.

“The center is constantly running out of supplies, so we wanted to help,” said Liz Klarecki, a student enrolled in the leadership theory and practice course.

The Student Leader Fellowship Program is a two-year, nationally recognized leadership development program. The program is dedicated to developing community-centered leaders who are ethical and competent. The SLFP provides student fellows with a series of skill builders and with a mentor who helps the fellows develop their leadership skills. They are also required to do a community-based project for their leadership class.
