Monday, October 8, 2018

ECU Dowdy Student Stores and their vendor, Perfect Promotions & More of Apex, presented a check on Sept. 25 for $1,750 to ECU Student Veteran Services.

The money was raised through sales of veteran support T-shirts at Dowdy Student Stores, from Memorial Day through July 4. A portion of the sale of each shirt was donated by both Dowdy Student Stores and their vendor, Perfect Promotions and More of Apex.

ECU Student Veteran Services is a division of the Office of Student Transitions and provides services for veterans entering ECU. According to Nicole Jablonski, assistant director, the funds will be used to expand the textbook lending library that the department has set up for military veteran students.

The university-operated bookstores also sell fund-raising T-shirts for cancer, ALS, and autism support, in addition to the store’s student scholarship contributions made annually.

Perfect Promotions Vice President of Sales Stephen McFadden is proud to play a role in the effort. As a vendor of Dowdy Student Stores and a 2010 ECU alumnus, McFadden enjoys partnering with the store on projects like this that give back to the local community.

McFadden has worked with Dowdy since 2008 helping produce over 100 officially licensed ECU items to date, but said his favorite pieces have always been the T-shirts for a cause.

East Carolina’s bookstore is a self-operated, university-run store. They receive no state funding. Instead, the campus bookstore maintains its services through their sales. Profits are then directed back to the university community through scholarship contributions and other donations to campus projects.
