coffeebreakProvide Clean Drinking Water
Enactus, one of our student organizations, has two humanitarian projects they are working on this semester. The group is collecting funds to purchase Lifestraws, a water purification system, that will provide pure water to children five and under as well as pregnant women in Haiti. For each Lifestraw purchased, one child will have clean water for a year. Purchase one straw for $10 or three for $25. This is a tax deductible contribution.

For more information about Lifestraw visit www.buylifestraw.com. To make a contribution contact Dr. Nancy Ryan, the group's advisor, at nryan@averett.edu.
