HPU students, faculty, and staff made donations ranging from
$1 to $50 for a total of $1,000. Contributors of $10 or more
could receive “honor cards” to give to friends
or relatives in place of holiday presents. The smaller donations
were combined as gift of a sheep and a pig from the HPU community,
and the honor card for those donations has been given to President
The Pals are a new club on campus formed to assist new international
students still learning English and to encourage cross-cultural
friendships. They were helped by students from Jean Kirschenmann’s
EFP 1390 Academic Research and Writing class. Their research
topic for the fall term was Heifer Project International. All
members of the class assisted at their display table.
Hamblin, along with students in her PR 3720 Public Relations
Cases class, also assisted with ideas and encouragement.
Heifer Project International donates income-producing livestock
to needy families worldwide. A family that receives a cow
from HPI, for example, improves its diet by drinking milk
its income by selling surplus milk or other dairy products.
Recipients also pledge to pass on the first female offspring
of their animal to another family in need. The name Heifer
International is derived from the very first animals donated
more than 50 years ago when the organization was founded.
