GCU volunteers at Arizonans for Children Foster Festival
GCU News Bureau
How many volunteers does it take to sow seeds of purpose? We quickly lost count last weekend but rest assured, no stone was left unturned nor garden untended after GCU made appearances at four outreach events. It started at the Cartwright Community Garden and wrapped up with GCU Men’s Soccer, Cheer and the big guy himself, Thunder, making their annual appearance at the Arizonans for Children Foster Festival at Enchanted Island Amusement Park, where kicking goals is more than just fun, it’s a peek at opportunities for higher education. When being interviewed for a mentor through AFC, and asked where they are going to college, more than 90 percent of foster children answered GCU. Future Lopes, indeed.
