PR Students Making a Difference for Women in Need

PRowl Public Relations supports women’s health at PRSSA National Conference

FullSizeRender-1.jpegIn honor of PRowl Public Relations’ 10th anniversary, Temple’s first and only student-run public relations firm donated $175 worth of feminine hygiene and bath products to Rosie’s Place, a non-profit women’s shelter, at the 2017 Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA)’s National Conference in Boston. The PRSSA National Committee chose Rosie’s Place as the organization’s community service initiative.

Temple sent five students to attend the Conference, Oct. 6 –  9, including PRowl’s executive board and PRSSA’s chapter president. Students gained valuable industry skills at workshops, networked with professional and peers, and attended career development sessions.

“Being able to attend PRSSA National Conference is such an enriching learning experience. However, being able to make a contribution to the host city is extremely rewarding. I’m proud  our firm and chapter were  able to make a  donation to Rosie’s Place, an organization that helps so many women in Boston,” said Clarissa Ford, PRowl Firm Director.

Rosie’s Place is a Boston-based women’s shelter whose mission is to “provide a safe and nurturing environment, which helps less fortunate women maintain their dignity, seek opportunity and find security in their lives.” Rosie’s Place relies on donations continue providing services to women.

“They truly are a shining light in their community offering a variety of different services to the women in need. It was amazing to see chapters from across the world come together for a good cause. It felt great to give back to a community that hosted us and see how much of a difference we can make when we come together,” said Marley Vawter, PRSSA National Vice President of Chapter Development.
