Staffline: January Edition

The Staff Council Social Committee would like to thank all those who volunteered, attended, donated, or baked for the Annual Staff Council Holiday Bazaar and Food Drive on Thursday, December 6, 2012. To see pictures from the event, as well as a list of raffle prize winners, please click here.

There were over 600 visitors to the event. With non-perishable food and cash donations, we gave 651 lbs of food to the Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf. Through the help of Parvin Pothiawala's Henna Tattoos we raised $119 for the Staff Emergency Loan Fund. Thank you for making this event another successful Holiday Bazaar and Food Drive.
