Black Hills State University Presidential Student Ambassadors are giving back to the community by collecting soup labels, milk caps, box tops and Coke rewards points for area schools.
The Ambassadors collected over 1,000 Box Tops for Education labels, 1,200 Campbell’s soup labels, 100 Land O Lakes milk caps, and 25,000 My Coke Rewards points. These items are then given to the area schools, to enhance their collection efforts in the classroom.
To continue collecting items, the ambassadors have set up collection bins on the BHSU campus at the Young Center front desk, at the BHSU Bookstore, and in the Alumni Office for anyone who wishes to drop their collected items into the bin. There are also collection bins in Spearfish at the Bum Steer, the Spearfish Police Department, the Spearfish Chamber of Commerce, and at Whites Queen City Motors.
According to Shauna Junek, advisor of the BHSU Ambassadors, “The group feels that giving back to the community is an important and rewarding experience. They are happy they can help give back to the Spearfish community.”
