Ag students raise money for local kids

Students show all the gifts they purchased.

Students on Southeast Community College’s Beatrice Campus raised approximately $3,080 for the Gage County Adopt-a-Kid community service project. The money raised was used to buy gifts for local children in the Beatrice area during the holiday season.

The Ag students kicked off the drive at the beginning of November and collected money through Thanksgiving. A group of students purchased the gifts at local businesses and will distribute them on Dec. 8-9, 2020. Seventy children were adopted for holiday gifts. This is the 16th year the Ag program has taken part in this community service project.

“This will provide 87 presents to children in Gage County that may otherwise not have a gift for Christmas,” said Jessica Young, Associate Dean.
