Project C.U.R.E., Kits for Kids
For 2011, the University Honors and Leadership (UHL) Student Club decided to dedicate its time and efforts to helping Project C.U.R.E.'s "Kits for Kids" program. Project C.U.R.E. is a nonprofit that donates medical supplies to numerous impoverished countries and the Kits for Kids program aids the organization by allowing groups to collect hygiene supplies that are then sent to children in underdeveloped countries. These supplies are meant to provide children with a higher quality of life while giving doctors basic medical supplies that will aid in their efforts.
The UHL Student Club took on the challenge of raising finances and supplies to create 20 of these Kits for Kids that contained a total of 200 hygiene supplies. Through a large bake sale effort in spring 2011 and in fall 2011, the club managed to collect a number of supplies as well as raise a total of $400. With this money, the club bought the remaining supplies that were needed and was able to pay the cost of shipping for every kit that was made. This was a tremendous group effort that will help many children and families abroad!
