Bracelets Offer Trendy Show of Support


The development of the “Suffolk Cares 2005” bracelets was spearheaded by Maureen Wark of Residence Life, working with the firm Shrader and Shrader, which produced 2,500 bracelets at a reduced cost. The color purple was chosen to evoke Mardi Gras.

The bracelets are available to students for $5, and for $10 to faculty and staff, with all proceeds going to Hurricane Katrina disaster relief. The base cost of each bracelet was 84 cents, and the goal is to raise $20,000.

Contributions from the following offices covered production costs for the bracelets: the Offices of the President, the Provost, the Dean of Students, the Dean of Enrollment, MIS, Human Resources, Campus Ministry & Interfaith Center, Student Activities and Service Learning, Financial Aid, Suffolk University Police and Security, Residence Life and Summer Programs, and the Budget Office.
