Fundraiser for Earthquake Relief
Melrose Fellows, Model UN delegates, Bonner Leaders and Scholars in Service sold Insomnia cookies to raise funds to help earthquake victims in Turkey and Syria on February 27 - March 1. Over $1,100 was raised for UNICEF.
In early February, a major earthquake struck southern Turkey and northern Syria, killing tens of thousands and displacing many more from their homes. UNICEF responded immediately, working to provide food, water, shelter and sanitation to displaced children and families. Groups affiliated with the Melrose Center organized a fundraiser, selling Insomnia cookies and collecting donations. Thanks to the efforts of Melrose Fellows, Model UN delegates, Bonner Leaders and Scholars in Service - as well as the generosity of the Ursinus community - $1,154 was raised to help UNICEF sustain its efforts.
