The Foundation of Wayne Community College is hoping residents are in a giving spirit this Giving Tuesday.
Diane Belmont is the Coordinator of Resource Development and Data Management for the Foundation of WCC. She appeared on Jeff Farrow’s Morning Show on Goldsboro’s Greatest Hits 1150 and 98.3. Belmont says the funds raised today will help with areas beside the Foundation’s scholarships, including departmental upgrades, faculty mini-grants, and travel stipends for clubs.
The Foundation has a goal of raising $20,000 today for its “Herd of Heroes” effort.
Today, the Foundation of WCC will have a designated donation site: the “WCC Student Lounge.” They will have students and volunteers throughout the day ready to join in on live updates, offer thank you’s to donors who stop by to give, and to take part in their celebrations.
One way the Foundation will celebrate is every time they pass a $2,000 milestone, one very lucky WCC employee will get a pie in their face. At their $20,000 goal, it will be WCC president: Dr. Walker who will get a pie in the face.
Near the end of the day, the Foundation will be collecting the donation jars from around Wayne County and reporting how much was raised as each location and offering a shout out of thank you’s for the businesses who collaborated and for those who gave at their locations.
To give to the Foundation, send a check to the Foundation of WCC with Giving Tuesday on the memo line to PO Box 8002, Goldsboro, NC 27533, or donate online at discover.waynecc.edu/givingtuesday.
