"The Katie Show" Challenge to Detroit

Cameron Hughes and the Katie Challenge for Change team from "The Katie Show" will be in Detroit on Monday November 11. They'll be working with Alternatives For Girls to help fill their Christmas list and bring awareness to the great work the organization does in the community. Cameron will be gathering all the school spirit he can muster from the students, faculty and staff at the Student Center from 3-4 p.m. Come to the Student Center with a heart to give - and for a chance to be on TV! You can adopt a program participant's Christmas wish list for $30* or donate new items that program participants need. Like these:

  • sleepwear
  • bras and panties
  • jeans and pants
  • shirts
  • sweaters
  • jackets
  • hats, scarves and mittens
  • winter coats
  • snow pants
  • socks
  • winter boots
  • duffle bags and suitcases
  • books
  • writing journals and pens
  • board games
  • children’s toys
  • watches, earrings and purses
  • bath and body sets
  • bath towel sets

*$30 check or money order made out to Alternatives For Girls, that can be mailed to Alternatives For Girls, 903 W. Grand Blvd. Detroit, MI 48208 or be delivered right to the Katie Challenge For Change team starting at 3 p.m. in the Student Center.

It’s a great way to show WSU’s leadership and commitment to the community. Be part of the challenge!
