C.A.A.T.S in a Box rescheduled for March 16-17
With snow forcing the postponement of the original date of C.A.A.T.S in a box, the event has been rescheduled for March 16-17 at the Cowley Sports Complex (City Ball Park) in Arkansas City. The event, which is conducted to raise homelessness awareness, will run from 4 p.m. Friday, March 16 to 4 p.m. Saturday, March 17.
The event is open to any Cowley College student or faculty member. Those interested need to bring their own box. Students will receive service learning hours for helping with the event. For more information contact Charlee Wilson at 620-441-5312.
Along with raising awareness on homelessness, members of the Cowley Activities Awareness Team (C.A.A.T.) will seek monetary and food donations. All monetary donations will be distributed evenly amongst the five meal ministries in Arkansas City, while food donations will be delivered to the Manna Ministries Food Bank.
Members of C.A.A.T. recently wrapped up its canned food drive, which was conducted at each of Cowley College’s six dormitories. The Lodge dormitory raised the most canned goods as C.A.A.T. members delivered more than 300 canned goods to the Manna Ministries Food Bank.
Also, on Feb. 20-25, C.A.A.T. members will help serve food to those in need at each of the five meal ministries in Ark City.
