Community Fund Drive Peoples Choice Award for VBS
This year the VBS Administrative Team including Dawn Foster, Jaclyn Barnes, Anne Mockovak, Brad Engelmann, and David Brown, were one of four selected units who won the People’s Choice Award.
 
During the month of October the Department of Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences hosted the annual Community Fund Drive on behalf of the College of Veterinary Medicine. This month long fund drive gives employees the chance to give to their favorite non-profit organizations such as the United Way, Minnesota Environmental Fund, and the University of Minnesota through participation and donations.
 
The VBS Department generated 32.9 % participation for the college which was more than a 10% increase from last year and raised over $700.00 with the month long events that included a bake sale, virtual bingo game, chili lunch, haunted house and costume contest, as well as giving animals, creepy crawly creature infestation, and a candy jar count.
