HCC sociology class held fundraiser

(Hagerstown, Md.)— Students in Professor Daniel Madron’s civic engagement class at Hagerstown Community College recently held a fundraising event to benefit CASA, Inc., as part of a class project.

“Each student was asked to identify a non-profit agency that they feel provides a vital service to Washington County, and give a presentation about that agency to the class,” said Madron. “After all the presentations, the class members took a vote and CASA was selected.”

Class members organized a bowling fundraiser to benefit CASA Inc., which provides support for domestic violence victims in Washington County. A total of $2,444 was raised from registration fees and personal donations.
