Homecoming weekend

One of the many perks of being associated with St. Ambrose University is being able to be apart of their festivities.  With homecoming weekend approaching, we have some festivities that we are apart of as well as some that we have created to celebrate the weekend.

The event includes the Open House from 5:30-7:30 where families are asked to bring a new or gently used coat for our Coats for Kids Campaign.  The following day, the Killer Bee a 5K adult run will begin at 8am.  The Bumble Rumble, the child’s fun run, will be following immediately after the Killer Bee.  This typically is around 8:45-8:50.  In preparation for the event, the children have been preparing by acting out each event.  There are still spaces open for the Bumble Rumble run!  Sign up today at http://sau.edu/Alumni/Signature_Events/Homecoming/Killer_Bee_and_Bumble_Rumble.html


There will be many locations for our Coats for Kids Campaign.  Please drop off a gently used or a new coat at the following locations!

Coats for Kids Campaign

My faithful blog followers,

Once again, my school, St. Ambrose University Children’s Campus has  decided to continue our support towards the Coats for Kids campaign by gathering winter apparel for men, women, and children.  The items that are being collected include gently used or new coats, boots, shoes, clothing, hats, and gloves.

We are currently looking for volunteers as we begin to prepare for this event.  Our volunteers can help us in many ways such as:

  • Donating large boxes to gather coats
  • Taking coats to Burke Cleaners
  • Keeping a box at your location of employment to gather coats
  • Getting the word out to your colleagues, friends, and family to gather as many coats as possible

Last year we had three boxes, one at the SAUCC, one at St. Ambrose University’s Speech and Language building, and one at the Rogalski Center which part of St. Ambrose.  Last year we had over 175 coats collected, and this year we would like to collect even more!

If you would be interested in helping and would like to donate your time with the above tasks, or have new idea of your own, please let me know. Again, thank you for your support.
