“You Can Help” Initiative Collects Over 70 Blankets for Homeless

May 31, 2012

The “You Can Help” initiative, founded by three CEU alumni scholarship recipients—Aldina Muslija (M.A., Legal Studies), Biljana Ilic (M.A., Nationalism Studies), and Jagoda Gregulska (Ph.D., Sociology and Social Anthropology)—collected over 70 blankets and other winter clothing items from the CEU community for distribution among Budapest’s homeless population. Thanks to President and Rector John Shattuck’s commitment to match the total collected, 140 items have been donated to the Red Cross and to Golgota Shelter (http://www.golgotabudapest.hu/en/misszio15/ourcity15/homelessshelter.html). “You Can Help” was organized by the Alumni and Career Office and supported by the CEU Human RightS Initiative and CEU Care for the Homeless.
