A "Pie Your Professor" fundraiser at SU raised $700 for Health and Outreach Point of Entry, Inc. (HOPE).
SALISBURY, MD---Students in Paula Morris’ advertising and promotions classes at Salisbury University raised more than $9,000 for local causes this spring.

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 volunteer and member recruitment events, to a film screening to raise awareness of domestic violence, to fundraising concerts and athletic events.

Proceeds benefited groups including Habitat for Humanity; One Love; Cool Kids Courageous; Salisbury Horizons; Health and Outreach Point of Entry, Inc.; and MAC, Inc., among others.
