Tiffany Easter designed a Bush 41 sweatshirt that raised $3,409 in donations to a local nonprofit that provides services for victims of domestic assault. Phoebe’s Home personally received the donations from Bush School students.
Easter, a second-year Master of Public Service and Administration (MPSA) student, worked with a local business to produce the sweatshirts that she designed. Four hundred two Bush sweatshirts were sold to faculty, staff, students, and even family members of students.
Phoebe’s Home is a part of Twin City Mission’s Domestic Violence Services Program. Twin City provides services such as shelter, counseling, case management, legal advocacy, safety planning, and career assistance to victims of domestic violence and dating violence. Phoebe’s Home provides twenty-four-hour emergency shelter for victims of domestic violence as well as meals, laundry facilities, toiletries, transportation, and recreational activities.
George H. W. Bush said, “There could be no definition of a successful life that does not include service to others.” Bush School students honor the memory of Bush through acts of public service like helping women’s shelters.
