Students, Fresno State leaders support Valley Children’s Kids Day

Several Fresno State luminaries will join other local dignitaries and officials to sell Kids Day newspapers at the “Celebrity Corner” on Blackstone and Shaw avenues in Fresno.

First lady Mary Castro and her son Jess; Bulldogs football coach Jeff Tedford; and Fresno State athletic director Terry Tumey will join more than 1,000 Fresno State students from more than 100 student clubs and organizations as part of this year’s Kids Day fundraiser from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday, March 5.

The campus effort in the Valley-wide drive is led by the Jan and Bud Richter Center for Community Engagement and Service-Learning and supported by many student organizations including the Associated Students, Inc. The Richter Center has set a goal of surpassing the $41,000 collected last year by Fresno State students through the one-day fundraiser.

The annual drive to benefit Valley Children’s Hospital in Madera brings friendly competition to campus as student clubs and organizations vie to sell the most newspapers at intersections across the area.
