Giving Tuesday!

Hi Spartans, Just a reminder since break is just around the corner! My name is Faith Wagner and I am the Vice President of Community Relations with the Student Government Association (SGA). Giving Tuesday is a global holiday where there are millions of people that participate in donating and giving. Giving Tuesday was created in 2012, ten years ago, and Castleton has participated in this ever since. This year for Giving Tuesday, the Student Government Association is holding a resource drive. Donations can be made in the name of any SGA-affiliated club or athletic team. All donations are assigned a point value and the three highest-donating groups will receive a prize for their club or team. The prize for the top three winners are: 1st Place: $500  2nd Place: $200  3rd Place: $...
