Ferris State University’s chapter of the Public Relations Student Society of America donated $200 to Angels of Action, a Big Rapids, Mich.-based non-profit organization that helps underprivileged children in Mecosta County.
Ferris PRSSA’s donation was the result of monies raised during the organization’s third-annual pizza-tasting fundraiser competition, Za Best of Za Best, on Sept. 29. The donation marked the second year that the chapter has given a portion of the event’s proceeds to support Angels of Action.
The donated funds will help the Angels of Action Backpack Blessings project. Backpack Blessings provides students with a backpack filled with sack lunches to eat during weekends. Eighty-six Riverview Elementary students benefit from Backpack Blessings. A donation of $195 supports one child for a year.
In Fall 2015, PRSSA selected AoA to be their philanthropy organization, and their
members have been supporting the cause ever since.
