Preschoolers help UO Law School with fundraising flurries

EUGENE, Ore. -- A group of preschoolers helped some University of Oregon law students use glitter, glue and scissors to decorate snowflakes that will be sold to help the UO School of Law’s Public Interest Fund.

The snowflakes made by preschoolers from the Vivian Olum Child Development Center will be auctioned to support stipends for law students who want to spend their summers working in public service. Law students like Annie Borton said this will help ease the worries related to money.

“Law student and those organizations don't have it in their budget to be able to hire law students so these stipends allow students to pursue their passions and work for these organizations despite there not being enough money for it,” said Bolton.

The School of Law is selling the snowflakes ranging from $5 for a small, $10 for a medium or $20 for a large. The sale runs through November 26.
