Gearing up for departure!

April 26, 2017

Thank you to all who donated to our campaign online! We reached 48% of our goal thanks to you! Your donations will help UNC Charlotte students defray the costs of travel and purchase materials for the orphanage in Costa Rica. We're still not done, as the students participating in the program have also been working hard with offline fundraising to help reach the goal. We are gearing up for the program to depart soon on May 27th.

If you'd still like to make a donation, please see the details here. There is also a donation box for the orphanage on the 4th floor of CoEd if you'd like to make an in-kind donation on campus.

Thank you again, and stay tuned for updates with photos during the program!
