RLC Foundation hosted 'Giving Tuesday' event

INA, IL (KFVS) -

One Heartland college hopes to spark the giving spirit by giving back to faculty and students.

The Rend Lake College Foundation hosted a Giving Tuesday event on Tuesday afternoon, Dec. 1, complete with seasonal goodies and Christmas movies.

"Giving Tuesday is about generosity and giving back and getting into the Christmas spirit, if you will," Shawna Bullard, of RLC, said. "Today, we're giving back to our students here by giving them hot cocoa, cotton candy and popcorn and just trying to encourage them to understand that giving back is good."

The college also offered ideas on how to pay it forward. They gave out arm bands for those who donated money for local charities.
