Students in Southeast Community College’s Agriculture Business & Management Technology program adopted 17 kids in the Beatrice community. Students raise money to buy the kids toys and clothes during the holiday season.

“The Ag Club spearheads this event and we try to adopt as many kids as we can for the holidays,” said Annie Erichsen, instructor. “Each kid we adopt receives $50 of clothing and toys. All the extra money we raise goes to the local food pantry.”

More than 150 students and employees at SCC helped raise money for the Adopt-A-Kid fundraiser. This is the 12th year SCC has participated in conjunction with Blue Valle Community Action in Beatrice.
