At the time of Sister Anna Margaret’s death, the Office of Institutional Advancement established The Sister Anna Margaret Random Acts of Kindness Fund. Members of the faculty and staff, along with alumnae and friends, were very generous in their support of this fund which will perpetuate the kindness which Sister Anna Margaret so exemplified in her own life. We would like to invite all faculty and staff members to join in making this “random acts” fund a reality in the life of the College.
If you see a student doing an act of kindness, we ask that you fill out a RAK card. The card asks for the student’s name, date and your signature. You are asked to briefly describe the student’s act of kindness on the back of the card and then you would give the student the card and ask her/him to take it to Mullen 242 where she/he will be given a gift card.
