Two big Pay it Forward (PIF) Week activities took place in the last two days.  Both ended up extremely successful.

On Tues., April 22, the SWCC Student Senate hosted a Red Cross Blood Drive.  The goal of the Blood Drive was to raise at least 43 units of blood.  By the end of the day, the Red Cross went home with 55 units of blood; therefore, the Student Senate finished 12 units above goal for the day!!  Thanks to all the donors and volunteers who made this day a success!

Get involved!  Whether you Pay it Forward on your own, with a group of friends, or during one of the large group activities, encourage positive behaviors and service to the community throughout the week. 

Check out the planned PIF Week Events!

Post your PIF activity!
