Program Spotlight: Loyola’s Easter Break Shuttles

Standard

BtZCmoOCQAAginS-300x300Let’s hear it for Active Minds at Loyola University in Maryland for their participation in the on-campus Easter Break Shuttle — these stigma fighters have fundraising down to a tee!

On April 1st and 2nd, two days leading up to Easter Break at Loyola, the Student Government Association offered $10 shuttles to pick up students from campus and drive them to the local airport in Baltimore, about 45 minutes south of campus, making it possible for out-of-state students to receive an affordable trip to the airport and to get home safely for Easter Break. The Active Minds chapter was chosen as one of four organizations to serve as beneficiaries of the profits, allowing them to raise funds at the same time!

Ahead of the shuttle ticket sale, student groups were encouraged to apply with SGA to receive the profits, and Active Minds at Loyola was one of four organizations selected out of a large group of applicants. This meant that with the purchase of tickets, students were given the option to donate their ticket money to the Active Minds chapter or one of the other three groups.

As it turns out, Active Minds at Loyola University Maryland was the second highest organization to receive donations from the shuttle trips! They were also recognized by their school as Club of the Year. Congratulations, Active Minds at Loyola Maryland, for all of your hard work this year. It has certainly paid off!
