Butte College’s Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) and men’s basketball team partnered with Hamilton City Middle School to provide a free assembly for sixth, seventh and eighth graders recently. SIFE students partnered with the school to provide needed school supplies to students along with developing an assembly about the importance of staying in school and having goals. The Basketball Team performed a series of drills, entertained questions from the students and invited them onto to court to shoot free throws and sign autographs.
At the end of fall semester last year, SIFE students made announcements in their classes for donations of gently used backpacks, calculators, pencils, pens, binders and other school supplies to deliver to students at Hamilton City Middle School. The purpose of this collection was to identify needy students in our service area who would benefit from these supplies and also to advance the College’s mission of sustainability by reusing these resources.
