Northeast clubs combine forces for #NorfolkCares campaign by hosting event on campus

Northeast Phi Beta Lambda and the Chamber of Commerce Cadets are hosting an event to bring awareness, education and fundraise for flood relief. Two community members will be speaking at the event.


Suzie Leffers, the Director of Public Relations for the Orphan Grain Train, will present information regarding the flood and how OGT contributed to the relief.


Troy Uhlir, the Madison County Road Commissioner, will speak about the tremendous impact the flood has had on county roads.


The event will be held on Monday, May 6th, at 6 p.m. at the Lifelong Learning Center Suite F & G on the Norfolk Campus.


This event is part of the joint effort of two Northeast Community College clubs joining forces for the #NorfolkCares campaign. The sole purpose of this is to demonstrate why it is important to be involved in the community through service and volunteering. Part of this involves posting on social media with the hashtag #NorfolkCares to highlight how businesses and members contribute to the community.


They are also fundraising by selling T-shirts which can be seen on their Facebook page Northeast PBL. Also, businesses can sponsor the event for $50, which includes their name on the back of each T-shirt. Due to bulk ordering, the shirts will be available for pickup at a later date.


Northeast PBL is an organization dedicated to inspiring and developing the next generation of leaders by preparing members for careers in business and business-related fields.


The Chamber of Commerce Cadets is a club on campus that’s sole mission is to bridge the gap between present and future professionals.
