Students contribute to hurricane relief

THATCHER, AZ—Students at Eastern Arizona College and Cochise College have teamed up to donate more than $2,000 to the American Red Cross for hurricane relief.

At Eastern Arizona College, the Associated Students raised funds by selling T-shirts and balloon/candy grams for Halloween, collecting loose change at volleyball games, auctioning student dinner dates, and holding an email bake sale.

At Cochise College, the Student Government Associations raised funds at the Douglas and Sierra Vista Campuses holding a 50/50 raffle, placed donation boxes around campus and the community, contributed proceeds from a Halloween event, and earned 20 percent of the profits from a night of work at a local Pizza Hut. –30–
