Students of Dr. Mary Wilson's spring 2012 Victimology class will be collecting items to aid a quartet of area agencies and the victims and families which they serve.
This semester, Wilson's students were tasked with completing a service learning project on remedying the plight of area crime victims. Students designated four area agencies â€“ Someplace Safe (Trumbull County), Rape Crisis Program (Trumbull County), Home Safe (Ashtabula County) and Women Safe, Inc. (Geauga County) â€“ which they would assist; visiting each agency to gather information on the type of services that each provided; types of crime victims they worked with; funding sources and needs of those agencies.
A class discussion on how to assist the agencies generated a list of items to be collected during the designated week and donated thereafter. Those items include household cleaning supplies, non-perishable food items, children's craft items, sweatshirts and sweatpants and art supplies and notebooks.
Donation bins will be placed outside Dr. Wilson's office (174, Link Building) as well as the lobbies of the Workforce Development and Technology buildings beginning March 15 and continuing through April 20.
