students give time,
almost $4,500 to
NORTH MANCHESTER, Ind. – Students in Manchester College’s Accounting
and Business Case Studies class put their calculators to the test in a
non-for-profit business, O’Chet.
The class-run organization spent spring semester marketing and
selling discount cards, cookie mixes and cleverly worded T-shirts.
Students also contributed 463 volunteer hours to the youth of North
Manchester – serving at The Firehouse youth events site, providing
tutoring services, creating a website for the Learn More Center and
providing an after-school activities day at the elementary school.
A total of $4,449, all of O’Chet’s proceeds, was donated to The
Firehouse in North Manchester. The case studies class is taught by
Associate Professor Timothy A. Ogden.
Manchester is a college of the Church of the Brethren, with an

708 members of the college community gave more than 11,100
hours of volunteer service. For more about Manchester College, visit the
