Collection of Kindness

GWC April Sustainability 21-Day Eco Challenge

In partnership with the Peace & Leadership Club, Campus Life and the Inter-Club Council are hosting a 21-Day Eco Challenge for all Golden West College students, employees, and alumni from April 1st - April 21st, 2021.  Each day, we invite you to commit to one action which can have a larger social and environmental impact.  Throughout the challenge, we will announce the collective impact that our GWC community is having.  You can find a full list of the 21-Day Challenge actions, as well as log your impact, at the following link: www.tinyurl.com/GWCEcoChallenge

Additionally, if you are a member of a GWC Student Club or Organization, each action that you complete will be tallied for your club. At the end of the challenge, Inter-Club Council will award club stipends for 1st Place ($60), 2nd Place ($40), and 3rd Place ($20). The April 21-Day Eco Challenge will take the place of our Virtual Acts of Kindness program for the month of April.

Our challenge will culminate with the GWC Peace Conference on Peace and Sustainability on Wednesday, April 21st from 4:30pm - 7:30pm, so don't forget to join us for this Zoom event!

Virtual Acts of Kindness

While the GWC Campus remains closed due to COVID-19 restrictions, Inter-Club Council has created the Virtual Acts of Kindness program in lieu of the traditional, in-person Collection of Kindness.  Club members may report on their individual acts using the Virtual Acts of Kindness Log via the following link: www.tinyurl.com/ICCActsofKindness.  

At the end of each month, stipends will be awarded from the ICC Account to Individual Club Accounts in our standard amounts for 1st place ($60.00), 2nd place ($40.00), and 3rd place ($20.00).

Collection of Kindness

The Collection of Kindness is tradition of giving sponsored by the Associated Students of Golden West College. The concept is simple if each person performs one simple act of kindness each month and these efforts are coordinated to serve a larger purpose, our campus can have an incredible impact as a whole.

Each month during the academic year, the Office of Student Life & Leadership collects donation items as listed below. As an incentive for student clubs & organizations to participate, ICC offers stipends each month for 1st Place ($60), 2nd Place ($40), and 3rd ($20) Place.
