PIF logo redSWCC’s 2012 Pay it Forward (PIF) Week will be held April 16-20, 2012. During PIF Week, SWCC students, faculty, and staff get involved in encouraging positive behaviors and service to the community. Specific details about activities for the week will be available on the SWCC Web site next week.

PIF Week started in 2009 with 10 students and has spread across campus and the community. There are little things you can do--hold the door for someone, thank a mentor, write a note of encouragement to someone with an illness, pay for the next person’s coffee at the drive-up, or help an elderly member of the community with yard work. It is easy to have a positive impact on the community.
