More than 200 packs of crayons and 150 coloring books will be delivered to Valley Children’s Hospital in Madera (9300 Valley Children’s Place) at 1 p.m., Friday, Nov. 17, as part of a recent class project and crayon drive by Fresno State students in a Media, Communications and Journalism publication design course.
The students — under the direction of Dr. Tamyra Pierce, MCJ professor — created the coloring books as a class assignment, along with a flier competition to promote the crayon drive that was conducted Oct. 24 to Nov.7. The students were divided into teams and selected a theme for their coloring book with each student designing three pages.
Funding for the book printing was provided by Friends for Civic Engagement of the Jan & Bud Richter Center for Community Engagement and Service-Learning. After the hospital visit, the students will also deliver books to the Ronald McDonald House in Madera (9161 Randall Way). INFO: Dr. Tamyra Pierce at 559.278.2632.
