Community Cares Expo slated

TAHLEQUAH — One of the four campaigns this semester from Northeastern State University’s media studies course, Media Campaigns and Events, is an expo for the Tahlequah community and the NSU student body.

The Community Cares Expo will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, March 26, at the Second Century Square on the NSU Tahlequah campus.

The campaign has invited nonprofit and charity organizations in the area to set up booths with information and volunteer opportunities for NSU students and the community. The campaign hopes to have at least 30 groups present. The purpose is to promote and raise awareness for volunteer opportunities.

The NSU activities board and NSU food pantry will be serving free food and drinks. There will be prizes and mini-games each hour. Any nonprofit organization is interested in participating should call Tricia Price at (580) 372-0718.
