Human Ecology Students Receive $250 Grant to Help Women’s Shelter

861

Sarah Dickenson and Kathryn Dye, two Human Ecology students and leaders in the Child and Family Sciences (CFS) Club, were recently awarded a $250 grant from Upper Cumberland Council on Children and Youth (UCCCY). The pair, empowered by financial support from UCCCY, provided period supplies to the Genesis House, a local domestic violence shelter. Their objective was to ensure that shelter residents have access to the necessary period supplies and to reduce the shelter’s financial burden, as well as provide a sense of dignity and security to those in need. The supplies included pads and liners and were delivered on Wednesday, December 6th. For more information about this project or the CFS club, please contact Sarah Dickenson at sbdickenso42@tntech.edu.
