Staff member Gail Gettman and faculty member Larry Heck helped raise money from Newman employees for the 2007 United Way Campus Campaign.

The Hispanic American Leadership Organization (HALO) is finishing up a shoe drive for children in Guaymas, Mexico. Campus Ministry had seen this need through their recent service trip.

The Newman community helped Stuff the Bus to benefit Catholic Charities Harbor House and YWCA Women’s Crisis Center on Nov. 29.
