JBC students raise money for Northern Chautauqua Canine Rescue
Throughout the Fall 2014 term at Jamestown Business College, Mr. Melquist’s and Mrs. Reisenweber’s marketing classes promoted and sold products to the JBC and surrounding communities. The two class collaborated on some of the project to reach the same goal To market products that provide value to its customers. In deciding this goal, they decided that their profits should support a cause in the county that more people should be aware of. Both classes decided that their proceeds would be donated to the Northern Chautauqua Canine Rescue of Westfield, NY. Through research, surveying the student body, and analyzing the data, students decided to sell JBC tumblers, JBC sweatshirts, JBC blankets with a Northern Chautauqua Canine Rescue logo hand-made by a JBC student, and JBC t-shirts with the same NCCR logo. Students were able to apply the principles they learned in a real world project to raise over $1,200 and supplies, such as dog food, bathing supplies, treats, and much more. The efforts the students made were outstanding. All proceeds, totaling $1,282.50, went to the Northern Chautauqua Canine Rescue, a not-for-profit organization, no-kill shelter for dogs. Both classes would like to thank everyone involved who helped them to be a part of this opportunity and who aided them in learning and raising money for such a wonderful organization.
