Peru State students helping the homelss

(KLZA)-- In honor of National TRIO Day, SAIL which stands for Students Active in Leadership, focused on a project for the homeless.

National TRIO Day is celebrated during the last week of February. A tradition of student members of TRIO programs is giving back to their communities through acts of service. SAIL addressed urgent needs of the Open Door Mission like collecting toilet paper for their homeless which houses 917 safe shelter beds.

SAIL members set a goal of collecting 155 rolls of toilet paper to deliver to the Omaha shelter. 155 is significant in that it is the age of Peru State College. Peru State Bobcats rallied for the cause and ended up collecting 302 rolls. Peru- Student Success Services supports eligible students in completing their college degree.
