Manchester College students give time,

almost $4,500 to community’s youth

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 emphasis on service learning.   This year, 708 members of the college community gave more than 11,100 hours of volunteer service. For more about Manchester College, visit the web site at
