Business classes raise $2k for Rescue Mission

BY Staff Reports - ctreport@indy.rr.com

Two Indiana Wesleyan University business classes donated nearly $2,000 to the Grant County Rescue Mission this semester. Students raised the funds as part of their final project, called “Investing Your Talents,” in their Management Principles course.

The students presented the check for $1,939.72 to the Rescue Mission on Friday.

The project involves starting with between $1 and $5 per student, pooling the funds between groups of students and using the money to raise more through things like bake sales, cookouts or fundraising at local restaurants.

Dr. Lisa Nieman started assigning “Investing Your Talents” in 2007 and since then her classes have raised over $38,000 for the Grant County Rescue Mission through the assignment, according to an IWU press release.

“This project allows our student’s to use what they are learning in class to make a difference in the community, in which they spend eight months a year,” Nieman said. “It also gives our students the opportunity to serve using their gifts and talents that God has given them to help others.”
