MBU Athletics Collects Funds for 5.55 Campaign

MBU Athletics Collects Funds for 5.55 Campaign

Staunton, VA—Mary Baldwin Athletics just wrapped up their annual Pennies for a Purpose community service campaign. Each spring, the USA South Athletic Conference hosts this friendly competition between conference schools. Perennial winner, Averett, collected a whopping $5221.94, and the conference as a whole collected over $20,000. The Fighting Squirrels collected a school record $1125.24 in cash and product donations, more than doubling the amount collected last year. Since the start of Pennies in 2008, MBU has donated $5517.79 to local charities, and conference schools overall have donated over $78,000 to charitable causes.

Benefitting from MBU’s hard work again this year is the $5.55 Feminine Hygiene Drive, coordinated by Women’s Studies professor Heather MacAllister. This program provides monthly supplies of hygiene products to homeless girls in the surrounding area. Doing so helps keep these girls in school every day, with the ultimate goal of supporting their education and ending the cycle of poverty. This program was also the recipient of MBU’s Pennies donation in 2017.

Junior softball player and SAAC Chair Alli Bascunan is an avid supporter of this cause. “I wanted to donate to the $5.55 feminine drive for a few reasons. It is a campus-run drive, so I felt it would be nice to support a campus initiative. Also, feminine hygiene is often taken for granted, when in reality there are several young girls who miss out on school because they can’t afford basic products. It feels good to be able to help local girls.”

The entire athletic department would like to thank the many friends, family, faculty, staff, and community members who donated to this worthy cause. Special thanks go to local businesses Clocktower Convenience, The Visulite, and Pampered Palate for hosting a donation jar, and to local radio station WQSV (106.3) for airing a public service announcement. We would like to also thank Kroger and its customers for their continued generosity and support of MBU Athletics and Pennies for a Purpose.
