Last week, the UNICEF Volunteers Committee opened their annual fair to raise funds for UNICEF, the United Nations Children’s Fund. The fair, which is being held in Building No. 49 in the Main Campus Housing area, kicked off on October 15 at noon, and will be wrapping up today.
With many Bilkenters stopping in to look and staying to shop, volunteers have been busy selling the donations they collected from the university community, ranging from lightly used and new clothing to books and decorative items. Especially popular have been the homemade goodies, including cakes, cookies and jams, prepared by the volunteers and their friends.
As the event entered its final day, the organizers expressed their gratitude to all those – volunteers, donors and purchasers alike – who have contributed to its success and helped make a difference in the lives of children they have never met.
