Clubs collect t.p. for Camp Courageous

There is still time to donate to Student Life’s third annual toilet paper drive that benefits Camp Courageous, a year-round camp in Monticello for children and adults with disabilities. 

Associate Director of Student Life and Student Leadership Council Adviser Seth Vander  Tuig said, “We were volunteering a few years ago at Camp Courageous and we were talking to them about anything we could donate and they gave us the idea of toilet paper.” For the past three years students from different clubs and organizations donate roughly 1,700 rolls of toilet paper to Camp Courageous, according to Vander Tuig.

He added that every year Student Life tries to get more students involved in this drive. One way includes Student Life leaders obtaining gift cards from local businesses that students can win for donating a certain amount of toilet paper. According to Vander Tuig, there is an annual competition between the clubs to see which one can donate the most toilet paper.

The club that achieves this task gets awarded with a traveling trophy as part of their accomplishment. The only club to have ever won this trophy, is Kirkwood’s American Hospitality and Lodging Association (AH&LA). Students, faculty and staff interested in participating can take their donation to the Student Life office in Iowa Hall before April 8.
