Global Leadership Adventures alumni Allison Hoffman was featured in the Patriot Ledger newspaper for collecting 300 pounds of school supplies to donate to the school she volunteered at in Ghana during her GLA program.
Often students ask me about donating supplies to the organizations that they volunteer at and I normally reply by saying that it’ll cost more to ship the donation than it would to simply buy the materials locally.
However, Allison was able to obtain a donation of shipping from the owner of a logistics company. I also like how she turns down the offer to send electric pencil sharpeners. She’s smart and aware enough to just collect supplies that can be used by the local community and use appropriate technology.
Kudos to you Allison for staying involved!
