Alumnae Start Non-Profit to Help Needy Children

Recent alumnae Ashley Rainsbarger and Aryn Frizell (Gilbertson), both graduates of the technical communications program and employees of Cerner, have joined forces to start "The Hope Chest," a not-for-profit organization aimed at serving disadvantaged and ill children in northwest Missouri.

The Hope Chest accepts toys, clothes, baby related items, school supplies, books, and much more. Ashley shares, "The Hope Chest is still in the early stages of development and needs community support. You can find more information about the organization on Facebook (search The Hope Chest) or at the Website."

We wish Ashley and Aryn great luck in their new adventure, and encourage EFLJ alumni, students, and staff to participate. We expect to hear updates as their work progresses.
