Intern C (’13) blogs today about the DESK project that took place on Monday of this week.
Monday, student organizations gathered on the Mag Quad from 3-7 pm to volunteer at D.E.S.K. (Discovering Education Through Student Knowledge). Beginning in 2000, the goal of D.E.S.K is to provide desks and other school necessities to children in the local community who are in need of these school supplies to study and learn in their homes.
Leaders for each student group met with their child on March 27th to talk about what that child would like their desk to look like. The children and their parents then came to campus Monday to help paint or further discuss their desk ideas and to enjoy a day of fun on the quad with music, a moon bounce, pizza and the Wake student groups.
