Students Fundraise to Support Peers

(Riverton, Wyo.) - Central Wyoming College Student Ambassadors are fundraising for People of Courage, a fund set up to help students in need. "We want to give back to our fellow students and do something that can really help them ," said Courtney Olsen a CWC Ambassador helping to organize the event. The students are hosting an arts and crafts fair on Saturday, April 30, from 9am-4pm. “Right now we are looking for all kinds of vendors to sell arts and crafts items at our event,” Abbey Morales who is also a CWC Student Ambassador said. Vendors will pay a $30 dollar table fee that will go towards the People of Courage fund. Vendors keep all of their own proceeds from the event. Applications for a booth can be filled out online. Last year the students choose to fundraise for Paws for Life and raised over $700 dollars. "We chose to fundraise for each other this year- to show our support for one another," Morales said. The People of Courage Endowment is sponsored by the Central Wyoming College Foundation. The endowment has been created with the goal of helping students who are unable to pay for books, tuition, food, medical expenses and a plethora of other needs. CWC Students who need aid from the People of Courage fund can go the CWC foundation office and apply to see if they qualify. The financial support varies but students may be eligible to receive a one-time gift of up to $300 dollars. The Ambassadors have set a goal of raising $600 dollars this semester.
