Make A Difference Day at CSUSB Palm Desert Campus
Did you know when foster children move from home to home, they usually have to carry their belongings in trash bags?
Together We Rise is a non-profit organization whose goal is to replace trash bags with blue duffel bags to make the foster care transitions a little bit easier for children, their link is here: https://www.togetherwerise.org/.
As part of the Make a Difference Day, the Office of Community Engagement partnered up with Palm Desert Campus (USTD 100A) and had CSUSB PDC students decorate and fill 70 duffle bags for children in the Coachella Valley. The bags were stuffed with a blanket, hygiene bag, coloring book, a pack of crayons, and various items donated by the students.
