AMA Cares


On the 21st of October, the fourth event of the marketing week took place. It was a "non-profit expo" situated in the BSN Atrium of the new building. The social impact committee worked carefully to contact non-profit organizations which operate in the Tampa Bay Area. With a group effort, AMA members brought various non-profit organizations for students to consider.


Let's go over some of them:


"Women Helping Others of Tampa Bay, Inc." - shortly referred to as "W. H. O." Their vision is to help improve the lives of others by providing resources, information, and a variety of other services to Tampa residents. W. H. O. focuses on those that are less fortunate, their mission is to teach them how to be "self-sufficient". Monthly feeding programs are aimed to eradicate homelessness among the community members, truly a valiant cause. Like any other non-profit organization, they are looking for those that care. If you are interested you can contact them through volunteermatch.org
