Sabrina Brown accepts donations from First Christian Church at 843 3rd street and another from the Churches Christian Women’s fellowship group. Sabrina and a group of Shawnee State University students will travel to a small village in Costa Rica this May taking school supplies to some 70 needy children purchased with your helping donations. The trip will also give students a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience tropical ecosystem conservation by helping in the clean up of tropical beaches and tagging endangered marine turtles. Sabrina Brown noted, we are trying to raise $2000 in a little at a time.


For those interested in helping call 740-354-1229 to make arrangements to pick up your donation, or donate online visit www.gofundme.com/7guojk or e mail at jfair@mymail.shawnee.edu
