SU Students Raise over $10,000 for Local Causes

SALISBURY, MD---Students in Paula Morris’ advertising and promotions classes at Salisbury University raised more than $10,000 for local causes last fall.

Each semester, Morris tasks students in the Franklin P. Perdue School of Business with developing and promoting fundraisers for local charities to give them real-world experience.

“This is service learning, but it’s also a way to teach implementation of business plans,” said Morris. “The students learn that things seldom go as planned.”

Activities included everything from quarter auctions and a 5K run to teacher training for drugs and a patriotic celebration.

Proceeds benefited groups including the Coastal Hospice, NuVu, Ocean Games, the Pemberton Hall Foundation, the Wicomico County Health Department, the Delmarva Zoological Society, local political organizations, Prince Street Elementary School, and Parkside and Crisfield high schools.
