STUDENTS LAUNCH SUCCESSFUL ART RAID
An art sale on December 8 sponsored by the Social Justice Chapter at Trinity raised money for the Lawndale Christian Health Center in Chicago, which serves AIDS patients in Lawndale and Garfield. Social Justice Chapter members got the idea of helping the health center from Acting on AIDS, a student chapter of World Vision, an international Christian relief and development organization. The sale included several items donated by students and some Native American art donated by the College’s Development office.
“Just goes to show how much the administration is behind the movement to support Christian organizations like Lawndale,” said Allison Backous ’07 from Sauk Village, Illinois.
Organizers say they held the “art raid” out of a desire to serve Christ and feed his sheep.
“It has been great to see the tradition of the art raid continue like it has,” said Sarah Bosshart ’07 from Fremont, Wisconsin. “This semester, we have raised hundreds of dollars. The money will support several organizations including the health center in Lawndale. It is further evidence that Trinity Christian College is making a difference in this world.”
