It is getting to be a stressful time of the school year with finals and graduation less than a month away. Have you thought of a way to deal with the stress yet? Ever wondered if you could make a difference? Students just like you are developing and exercising their leadership to change lives around the world. Snow College Public Relations class is putting on a pillow fight on April 15th that you can participate in and relieve all your semesters stress while giving back and making a difference in someone else’s life.
The class is holding an event to raise awareness for poverty by doing a pillow fight. The event will be called Pillow Fight for Poverty where the students of Snow College and the surrounding community are invited to attend. This will take place on April 15th on the Snow College Football field at 6:30pm. There are also a few rules to ensure safety for those participating. You must have closed toed shoes and a polyester pillow case. Memory foam and feathered pillows will not be allowed.
Pillow Fight For Poverty will be a giant 3 minute pillow fight where all the proceeds are donated to the local food bank in Mt. Pleasant and all the clothing will be going to a CHOICE organization, called Let’s End Poverty located in Orem, Utah, where they will distribute clothing and household items to third world countries with people in need. The food bank delivers food to Kids Café, The BackPack Program, Food Box and Mobile Pantries, being one of only a handful of food banks that distribute food free of cost to partner agencies. Let’s End Poverty is a CHOICE Humanitarian group that believes in the value and dignity of all human beings. With 30 years’ experience working to end poverty in Kenya, Guatemala, Nepal, Mexico, and Bolivia which are the locations that the clothing that you donate will be distributed.
The admission to get in can range from a can of food to your clothes you no longer wear. Donations are welcome and can be dropped off in the public relations class.
Snow College Public Relations was to come up with an event for their class and wanted to give back as they held this event. When told about the event, Jordyn Earl a student at Snow College says “I am hopeful that Snow College Students will be able to take advantage of this opportunity and that they will help out these people in need of the clothing and food.”
They wanted to donate to the community and decided that as an admission ticket for the pillow fight you can bring clothing or food that will be given to those in need. Take this opportunity to give back, clean out your cupboards/closets and relieve some stress by swinging a pillow at Snow College’s Pillow Fight for Poverty.
