Garden City Community College was awarded a
$5,000 grant from Lewis Toyota of Garden City to be used in support of GCCC’s Campus Closet, a service which offers items of need to students free of charge.
The Campus Closet, located in the Academic Building, provides students with needed
items, such as personal and oral hygiene items, household goods, food, school supplies
and more. This service is provided by GCCC employees and supported by Phi Theta
Kappa, as part of the chapter’s Service and Leadership Hallmarks.
“The goal of the GCCC Campus Closet is to help our students in need. We know that
when students are clean, well fed, and feel safe, they are able to excel in and out of the
classroom.” said Tammy Hutcheson, Social Science Instructor and Campus Closet
Founder. “We strive to guide our students to meet the mission of GCCC, which is about
producing positive contributing citizens. And we are so grateful for the support from
Lewis Toyota of Garden City in achieving this goal.”
The $5000 grant was made possible through the Toyota Dealership Association
Grassroot Marketing campaign. The grant money will help fund additional supplies and
storage solutions to improve the Campus Closet’s offerings to GCCC students.
Garden City Community College is honored by and grateful for the generous support from the Lewis family of Lewis Toyota of Garden City.
