HACC students helped to raise money for scholarships and tuition in a 24-hour blitz known as the Day of Giving.
There were 40 tuition giveaways at HACC’s five campuses, 30 at the Harrisburg campus alone.
“These are funded by our very generous donors and we literally draw their names and give them vouchers for $1,000 which can be used for tuition books and fees,” said Linnie Carter, vice president of college advancement.
“I just paid off my first semester. I just paid off my first semester after all this time,” said Justine Bonham, a winning student. “Now, I really don’t have to worry. I don’t have to ask my parents for a little bit of money. It’s a really big blessing.”
