When Leadership Development student Maggie Landowski, saw that Big Brothers Big Sisters of Fond du Lac posted a need for warm winterwear for kids, she knew just what her Capstone project should be!

Maggie created a wonderfully successful Drive Up event on Saturday, October 24 to collect socks, underwear, mittens, gloves, hats and scarves for BBBS families.

Maggie said, “This event has brought me so much joy to know that I have collected over 370 items total for kids in the Fond du Lac area to help keep them warm this winter.” Maggie’s instructor Mary Vogl-Rauscher said, “OUTSTANDING job Maggie!” Associate Dean of Business, Bobbi Fields said: “You did such a nice job on your project and presentation Maggie! I can certainly see that you put a great deal of planning and effort into your work. As I meet with employers and our MPTC advisory committee members, I continually hear the value of project planning, organization, communication as sought out skills. I thank you for your commitment to serving the community and again, wonderful work!”

“Maggie was our angel this holiday season,” Tammy Young, Executive Director of BBBS of Fond du Lac County, said. “She feels strongly that no child should want for basic things to keep them warm- hence the drive she put on for BBBS of Fond du Lac County- and boy did she deliver! Her “can do” attitude helped many children. On behalf of BBBS, I can’t thank her enough!”

Congratulations Maggie on your Bronze Student Community Impact Award!
