Marian Students Donate To NAMI

Marian University’s Student Social Work Association (SSWA) recently made a donation in the amount of $5,600 to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) of Fond du Lac.

“It is an honor to receive this donation on behalf of NAMI,” said Dale Hans, board president of NAMI and vice president of Horicon Bank in Fond du Lac. “This donation will benefit our outreach efforts in Fond du Lac, and continue to spread awareness and fight the stigma attached to mental illnesses.”

SSWA’s donation was fundraised from the Mental Health Awareness Event featuring keynote speaker Dr. David Mays that was held at Marian on October 7. The event was co-sponsored by Marian University’s Student Social Work Association and Horicon Bank.
