The Donation Drive-Thru Project (TDD-TP) hosted its first drive-thru on 11/21/2020 to benefit a local organization, Border Kindness. Border Kindness worked directly with the Students of Social Work Association (SSWA) to plan, organize and execute this event. SSWA created flyers and other advertisements for this event to inform students and the public about what TDD-TP is, who Border Kindness is, what donation items were being collected and other useful information. Volunteers arrived the day of the event (following COVID precautions) to set up and collect donations that were dropped off. Donations were taken by the founder of Border Kindness, Kelly Overton, and transported across the border to begin distribution to the population they serve. SSWA is excited to keep this year-long project going. Our next donation drive-thru will be December 16th to benefit CASA of Imperial County!
SSWA wants to send a special thank you to Deans Ponce and Wheeler for their support!
